US v. Smith, No. 08-1369

By FindLaw Staff on August 13, 2009 5:11 PM

Conviction for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in denying defendant a Franks hearing as an officer made a simple scrivener's error in the affidavit and there was sufficient information to establish probable cause with respect to the search of a house; and 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in its handling of a juror's misconduct in discussing the case with another juror.
