Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction for being a felon in possession of ammunition is affirmed where: 1) the discrepancy between the caliber of ammunition charged in the indictment and the caliber of ammunition offered into evidence at trial was a variance, not a constructive amendment, and the variance was not a reversible error because it did not prejudice defendant; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's request for a mistrial where the prejudicial effect of the objectionable question was de minimis, if at all, and the court gave a proper curative instruction to the jury.
