US v. Wells, 09-3276

By FindLaw Staff on October 12, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction under the Hobbs Act affirmed

US v. Wells, 09-3276, concerned a challenge to a defendant's conviction for conspiracy to violate, as well as three counts of substantive violations of, the Hobbs Act, in a case arising from defendant's solicitation and acceptance of about $40,000 in bribes as a water pipe repair supervisor of a city.  In affirming the conviction, the court rejected defendant's claim of prosecutorial misconduct, and held that defendant has not adequately explained why his ineffective assistance claims should be reviewed on appeal rather than through a habeas petition.
