US v. Betts, No. 08-3555

By FindLaw Staff on August 12, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court's drug-type finding was not clearly erroneous as the court properly relied on the testimony of people familiar with crack to determine that the substance was crack; and 2) the judge's disputed comments at sentencing did not constitute reversible error.
