US v. Pursley, No. 06-1107

By FindLaw Staff on August 24, 2009 5:18 PM

Defendant's conviction for retaliating against a witness is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in declining to sever the trial of defendant and his codefendants because granting severance would have thwarted principles of judicial economy; and 2) certain statements by the victim satisfied the excited-utterance exception to the general prohibition against hearsay evidence.
