US v. York, No. 07-2032

By FindLaw Staff on July 15, 2009 4:12 PM

Conviction and sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly admitted the majority of agents' interpretation testimony of the coded language of the narcotics trade; 2) a failure to exclude three interpretations as improper dual testimony was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt as the evidence against defendant was overwhelming, and the exclusion would not have resulted in a different verdict; and 3) defendant's motion to remand his sentence is denied as remand is not required to petition the district court to reduce his sentence in light of the retroactive application of the revised crack guidelines.
