US v. Turpin, No. 08-1585

By FindLaw Staff on January 31, 2010 6:03 PM

Defendant's robbery and attempted murder convictions are affirmed where: 1) the district court's denial of defendant's motion to sever his trial from that of his brother did not prejudice him because the record showed that defendant chose to testify for reasons other than simply exonerating his brother; and 2) no reasonable juror would infer from the prosecution's cross-examination of a defense psychologist that successful malingering would in fact get defendant "out of trouble" by setting him free.
