US v. Perez, No. 08-4131

By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 4:23 PM

Federal corrections officers' convictions for obstruction of justice and other crimes are affirmed where: 1) defendants' challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence was properly rejected as their actions were within the category of conduct proscribed by 18 U.S.C. sec. 1512; and 2) the instructions to the jury did not constitute plain error and thus a new trial is not required.
