US v. Hantzis, No. 05-50507

By FindLaw Staff on November 04, 2010 1:45 PM

Methamphetamine Conviction Affirmed

In US v. Hantzis, No. 05-50507, the court affirmed defendant's conviction and sentence for possessing with the intent to distribute, and distributing, at least fifty grams of methamphetamine, holding that 1) the district court conducted an adequate Faretta colloquy and defendant knowingly and intelligently waived his right to counsel; 2) the district court was not required to engage in additional Faretta colloquies at the subsequent evidentiary hearing or at sentencing in defendant's case because no significant changes in circumstance occurred; and 3) the district court did not err in declining to appoint new counsel for counsel for defendant at his sentencing.

As the court wrote:  "Defendant-Appellant Andrew Hantzis challenges his conviction and sentence for possessing with the intent to distribute, and distributing, at least fifty grams of methamphetamine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(A)(viii). He was sentenced to two concurrent terms of 211 months' imprisonment and five years of supervised release and ordered to pay a $4,000,000 fine."
