United States v. Corbett, No. 11-3678 (2d Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed his federal kidnapping conviction, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to prove that he held his kidnapping victim against the victim's will. The court concluded that the evidence was sufficient to demonstrate that defendant, after tricking his victim into a minivan, intended to continue holding the victim against his will - and so defendant did - before robbing and killing the victim, and leaving his body along the road. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
