United States v. Burrage, No. 19-2090 (8th Cir. 2020)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's revocation of supervised release for a Grade A violation for possession of heroin and three Grade C violations for disobeying the probation office. The court held that there was sufficient evidence to find that defendant committed the Grade A violation of possession of heroin by a preponderance of the evidence; the district court did not plainly err in denying defendant's due process rights by admitting evidence unrelated to a violation in the petition for revocation of supervised release; and, even if defendant's due process rights were violated, he failed to show how further disclosure would have helped him.
