By FindLaw Staff on February 09, 2010 2:52 PM

District court's conviction of defendant for bank robbery and imposition of a 65 months' imprisonment is affirmed where: 1) Rule 12(e) applies to identification testimony in court; 2) defendant cannot supply good cause for the purpose of Rule 12(e); and 3) a motion under section 2255 is the right way to obtain review of contentions that an attorney's carelessness causes a waiver under Rule 12(e), but the record on direct appeal lacks the evidence needed to make such a decision.
