US v. Calabrese, No. 08-2861

By FindLaw Staff on July 14, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction and sentence for robbery and using a firearm in connection with those crimes is affirmed where: 1) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's severance motion as defendant failed to establish that holding a single trial caused him actual prejudice; 2) the court did not abuse its discretion via the admission of an audiotape as the conversation on the audiotape was relevant and its probative value was not substantially outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice; 3) the evidence was sufficient to support the conviction; and 4) the court's below-guidelines concurrent sentences on each of the robbery counts was not unreasonable, particularly considering the violent nature of the robberies and defendant's pivotal role.
