Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Mail and Wire Fraud Conviction Affirmed
In US v. Redzic, No. 08-2418, the court affirmed defendant's mail fraud, wire fraud, bribery, and conspiracy, upon remand from the Supreme Court, where the theory of fraud under which defendant was convicted remained viable under Skilling.
As the court wrote: "This case is before the court on remand from the United States Supreme Court which vacated our prior judgment on a grant of certiorari and returned the case for further consideration in light of its decision in Skilling v. United States, 130 S. Ct. 2896 (2010). After Mustafa Redzic was convicted by a jury of mail fraud, wire fraud, bribery, and conspiracy to commit each of the substantive offenses, he was sentenced by the district court to concurrent terms of 75 months on each of the substantive counts and 60 months on the conspiracy."
