United States v. Wortham, No. 19-3334 (8th Cir. 2021)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed Defendants Wortham and Williams' conviction for carjacking, distributing PCP, and possessing a short-barreled shotgun in furtherance of those offenses. The court concluded that defendants waived any arguments they may have had regarding the jury instructions. In this case, they and the government jointly proposed the instruction at issue and the district court did not modify the part of the instruction that defendants now complain about. The court also concluded that the evidence was sufficient to support Wortham's convictions for aiding and abetting carjacking and distributing PCP.
