United States v. Widi, No. 11-1330 (1st Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
An ATF agent obtained a warrant and searched Widi's apartment, which contained a marijuana growing system, ammunition, and firearms. He was convicted of possessing a firearm or ammunition as a prohibited felon, 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1) and manufacturing marijuana, 21 U.S.C.841(a)(1) and sentenced to 108 months' imprisonment. The First Circuit affirmed, rejecting an argument that Widi was not competent to stand trial. The court also rejected challenges to the sufficiency of the evidence, denial of a motion to suppress statements made after Miranda warnings, denial of severance, and jury instructions.
