US v. Miles, No. 08-5128
Defendant's conviction for filing false tax returns is affirmed where the district court did not deny defendant the right to self-representation because it reasonably believed that he waived his right to self-representation after the jury was dismissed, and it allowed him to resume representing himself as soon as he reasserted his desire to proceed pro se at his sentencing hearing.
