United States v. Shumaker, No. 16-3739 (8th Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed defendant's conviction and sentence for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The court held that the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion for a judgment of acquittal because the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to support his conviction. Furthermore, the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's motion for a new trial because the newly discovered evidence was not material to the issues involved and would not have produced an acquittal at a new trial.
