Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana opinion today
In U.S. v. Todd Andrews (ND Ind., Theresa L. Springmann, Judge), a 13-page opinion, Chief Judge Flaum writes:
A jury found Todd Andrews guilty of bank robbery, 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a) and (d), and the use of a firearm during a crime of violence, 18 U.S.C. § 924(c). During his trial, the district court denied Andrews’ motion to suppress evidence seized from his home without a search warrant. After the close of evidence, Andrews moved for a judgment of acquittal on the firearms charge. The district court denied Andrews’ motion.
Andrews now appeals the district court’s decision to allow the government to introduce evidence seized at his home. He also appeals his conviction for the use of a firearm during a crime of violence.
For the following reasons we affirm the judgment of the district court.
