By FindLaw Staff on July 31, 2009 5:43 PM

Conviction for operating an unlicensed money transmitting business is vacated and remanded where: 1) the district court erred in refusing to give defendant's requested jury instruction on the scope of 18 U.S.C. sec. 1960; 2) the jury instruction error was not harmless, and defendant is entitled to a new trial; 3) the court did not abuse its discretion in ruling before trial that defendant could not offer evidence of his New Jersey license; 4) the court did not abuse its discretion in permitting the government to question defendant's witness about a complaint against defendant; and 5) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's unqualified request for funds to fly in witnesses, as defendant failed to establish that the witnesses were necessary for his defense.
