Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction for conspiracy to possess heroin with intent to distribute is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not commit plain error in admitting evidence of flight as it supported an inference of consciousness of guilt of the crimes charged; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in rejecting defendant's attempted guilty plea, based on sound reasoning provided by defendant's denial of his guilt.
