US v. Beck, 09-2337
Conviction and sentence of defendants for bank robbery related crimes affirmed
US v. Beck, 09-2337, concerned a challenge to conviction of defendants for several crimes involving a bank robbery. In affirming, the court held that, although the district court erred by allowing a defendant's probation officer to testify that she was a probation officer and by not allowing the defense attorneys to further question a witness about his potential bias, the error was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt. The court also held that there was no error in a defendant's sentence or the sentence imposed.
