Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Conviction and sentencing of a defendant for bribery is affirmed where: 1) district court's error in allowing the government to present summary charts to the jury was harmless error in that it did not have a substantial and injurious effect on the jury's verdict; 2) the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to find defendant guilty of bribery beyond a reasonable doubt; and 3) district court did not commit clear error in calculating the amount of loss in determining defendant's offense level.
