United States v. Vasquez, No. 12-41194 (5th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendants Vasquez and Echeverria appealed their convictions and sentences for conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The court concluded that the considerable evidence demonstrated that Echeverria knowingly agreed and voluntarily participated in the conspiracy; Echeverria's sentence was substantively reasonable; the district court did not commit plain error and Vasquez's Burton v. United States claim, that his conviction violates the Confrontation Clause, was rejected by the court; and Vasquez's remaining arguments failed to identify any reversible error. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
