Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 994 F.2d 844 (8th Cir. 1993) Submitted: January 12, 1993. Filed: May 17, 1993

Before WOLLMAN and BEAM, Circuit Judges, and NANGLE,*  Senior District Judge.


Defendant was charged in a three-count indictment with two counts of distributing cocaine base, in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (1), and with one count of aiding and abetting the distribution of cocaine base, in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (1) and 18 U.S.C. § 2. A jury found defendant guilty on one of the distribution counts and on the aiding and abetting count. Defendant has appealed, challenging the sufficiency of the evidence to support the convictions.

Having reviewed the trial transcript, we conclude that there is no merit in defendant's contention. Having concluded that an extended opinion would have no precedential value in this fact specific case, we affirm the convictions without further discussion.

The judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. Rule 47B.


The HONORABLE JOHN F. NANGLE, Senior United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri, sitting by designation
