US v. Green, 08-2330

By FindLaw Staff on August 10, 2010 12:20 AM

US v. Green, 08-2330, concerned a defendant's challenge to a conviction for attempted possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine, claiming that the district court erred by allowing the government to introduce evidence that he threatened to kill an undercover police officer. 

  • In affirming the conviction, the court held that although evidence of defendant's threat to kill an undercover officer with dynamite was not intrinsic evidence, as it did not directly prove that defendant attempted to possess cocaine with intent to distribute and it did not in any meaningful way facilitate his attempt to procure cocaine through certain individuals, district court did not err by admitting the evidence at trial as it was admissible under Rule 404(b).
