Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's conviction of defendant for tax evasion and conspiracy to defraud the United States is affirmed where: 1) upholding the government's inclusion of multiple years of evasion in a single count was proper; and 2) the government's charge was not impermissibly duplicitous because the statutory language does not prohibit the government's decision to charge defendant for multiple years in one count and because analysis of the concerns traditionally associated with duplicitous charges demonstrates that defendant was not prejudiced by that decision.
