By FindLaw Staff on October 14, 2009 3:59 PM

Sentences of defendants convicted of conspiring to distribute or possess with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine are affirmed where: 1) district court did not clearly err by finding that one of the defendants occupied a managerial or supervisory role in enhancing his offense level under U.S.S.G. section 3B.1(c); and 2) district court's application of the section 3C1.1 obstruction of justice enhancement to the other defendant was not clearly erroneous as his statements in an affidavit were material, and as such, defendant was not eligible for an acceptance of responsibility reduction.
