US v. Catalan-Roman, No. 06-1182

Defendants convictions for crimes relating to a conspiracy to rob armored vehicles and the shooting death of an armored vehicle guard during a robbery committed in furtherance of the conspiracy is affirmed and most of defendants' challenges are rejected, except with respect to the government's concession that the convictions on counts eight and nine violated double jeopardy and that one of the defendants must be resentenced on a count because he was not allowed the opportunity to allocute for that count.
