US v, Villalpando, No. 09-1263

By FindLaw Staff on December 17, 2009 11:53 AM

Conviction of defendant for possession and intent to distribute cocaine and sentenced to 70 months' imprisonment is affirmed as the incriminating statements defendant gave to the police after his arrest was voluntary because defendant's choice to reveal the cocaine in his safe was rationally made within the context of the negotiations and not the result of false promises made by the police.
