US v. Hassan, No. 05-6949

By FindLaw Staff on August 21, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's money laundering convictions are reversed where, although the government had abundant evidence of defendant's khat-related activities, the circumstantial evidence that the government presented did not support an inference that his proceeds were the result of the importation of cathinone. Other drug and conspiracy convictions are vacated where the district court gave erroneous instructions that omitted defendant's specific intent to import a controlled substance.
