US v. Alviar, No. 07-2333

By FindLaw Staff on July 23, 2009 3:40 PM

Conviction and sentence for drug crimes and conspiracy is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting evidence of defendants' gang affiliation as it was relevant to proving the allegations set forth in the indictment; 2) court did not err in refusing to sever defendant Madrigal from the trial; 3) the court properly accepted the government's Santiago proffer, as it gave the court sufficient evidence to conclude that the government met the preconditions for admission of co-conspirator statements; 4) the court did not err in allowing testimony about a prior consistent statement of a witness who was alleged to have fabricated testimony about defendant Delgado-Rios or in allowing defendant's mother-in-law to testify; 5) the prosecutor's disputed statement was not improper vouching, and the improper remark did not render defendant Delgado-Rios's trial fundamentally unfair; 6) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant Meloro's motion to bifurcate the trial; 7) the court did not err in enhancing defendant Tejada's offense level based on leadership; and 8) the court properly sentenced defendant Madrigal based on the drug quantities within the range found by the jury.
