US v. Bright, No. 08-1770
A conviction for bank robbery is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not commit plain error in admission of an eye-witness identification from a photograph array, as defendant failed to file a suppression motion before trial and failed to object at trial, and defendant cannot now cure by showing good cause; 2) district court did not err in allowing introduction of defendant's prior conviction for bank robbery and guilt-by-association evidence as their probative value was not substantially outweighed by unfair prejudice; and 3) it did not err in applying an obstruction of justice enhancement where, under U.S.S.G. section 3C1.1, escaping or attempting to escape from custody justifies the enhancement.
