By FindLaw Staff on January 26, 2010 3:38 PM

District court's judgment of acquittal for defendant convicted of drug related crimes is reversed and remanded as, the district court was required to review the record in the light most favorable to the government and should not have overturned the verdict where the evidence presented at trial could lead a rational trier of fact to find defendant knew a controlled substance was involved in the transaction, particularly his co-conspirator's statement regarding his role.
