US v. Johnson, 09-3264

By FindLaw Staff on December 16, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Felon in possession of a firearm conviction affirmed

US v. Johnson, 09-3264, concerned a challenge to a conviction of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm.  In affirming the conviction, the court held that the district court's comments did not chill defendant's constitutional right to testify.  Further, the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress, nor in refraining from considering defendant's mid-trial ineffective assistance of counsel claim.  The court also held that the district court did not commit clear error in declining to award defendant a two-level reductions for accepting responsibility, and that the district court did not commit plain error when sentencing defendant.
