Unpublished Disposition, 888 F.2d 1394 (9th Cir. 1989)Annotate this Case
UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,v.Martin Allen RIDGEWAY, Defendant-Appellant.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Argued and Submitted Oct. 4, 1989.Decided Nov. 3, 1989.
Before HUG, FARRIS, and REINHARDT, Circuit Judges.
We have carefully reviewed Martin Allen Ridgeway's attack against the trial court's evidentiary rulings. The record provides a sound basis for those rulings. The identifications were reliable. See Simmons v. United States, 390 U.S. 377, 384 (1986); United States v. Bagley, 772 F.2d 482, 492 (9th Cir. 1985), cert. denied, 475 U.S. 1023 (1986); United States v. Field, 625 F.2d 862, 868 n. 2 (9th Cir. 1980). The search of the vehicle was supported by probable cause. See United States v. Chadwick, 433 U.S. 1, 12 (1977); Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U.S. 42 (1970); United States v. Bagley, supra. The videotape demonstrations were more probative than prejudicial. See Fjelstad v. American Honda Motor Co., 762 F.2d 1334, 1337 (9th Cir. 1985); United States v. Brady, 579 F.2d 1121 (9th Cir. 1978), cert. denied, 439 U.S. 1074 (1979). See also United States v. Mehrmanesh, 689 F.2d 822, 832 (9th Cir. 1982).
