United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Jesus M. Baez, Defendant-appellant, 892 F.2d 84 (9th Cir. 1989)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 892 F.2d 84 (9th Cir. 1989)

Submitted Dec. 8, 1989. *Decided Dec. 27, 1989

Before BROWNING, BOOCHEVER and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges.


The district court found that Baez brought three kilograms of cocaine to the arrest site, intending to exchange the cocaine for a large sum of money. Consequently, the court found that Baez was not a minor participant in this conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute. See Sentencing Guidelines § 3B1.2(b). These findings are not clearly erroneous. See United States v Sanchez-Lopez, 879 F2d 541, 557 (9th Cir 1989).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
