By FindLaw Staff on July 29, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction for drug-related crimes is affirmed where: 1) the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act does not prevent the use of unsealed duplicates or materials sourced from such duplicates at trial as long as an original was recorded and judicially sealed in accordance with Title III of the Act; and 2) the failure to simultaneously broadcast the audiotape evidence through the courtroom's public loudspeaker as it was being played through headphones for the trial participants did not violate defendant's Sixth Amendment right to a public trial.
