US v. Steel, No. 09-50335

By FindLaw Staff on November 23, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Interlocutory Appeal from Denial of Dismissal of Indictment Dismissed

In US v. Steel, No. 09-50335, the court dismissed defendant's appeal from the denial of his motion to dismiss an indictment for conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, in violation of the Hobbs Act, where the court lacked interlocutory jurisdiction because defendant's double jeopardy claim was not colorable.


As the court wrote:  "A jury convicted Defendant William Steel and three codefendants of several crimes, including conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery in violation of the Hobbs Act, 18 U.S.C. § 1951(a) ("Count One"). On appeal, we reversed that conviction and remanded the case for a new trial because, although the evidence was sufficient to convict Steel on Count One."
