District court's conviction of defendant for knowingly and intentionally possessing with intent to distribute drugs and 120-month sentence is affirmed where: 1) there was no Speedy Trial Act violation as the district court did not err in construing the government's motion to set a trial date as a motion to continue; and 2) district court did not clearly err in determining that the defendant was ineligible for safety-valve relief and in applying the enhanced sentence, as it found the defendant to be a leader or organizer of the crime.
