Ind. Decisions - One Indiana decision today from 7th Circuit

In U.S. v. Elton Burks (ND Ind., Philip P. Simon, Judge) Judge Bauer writes:

Burks was convicted on the attempted murder charges and sentenced by an Indiana state court to 76 years’ imprisonment. After his sentence, Burks was delivered to federal custody on a writ of habeas corpus to face trial on the federal indictment. He filed a motion to suppress all evidence recovered from his arrest; the district court denied the motion.

Burks pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of ammunition, reserving his right to appeal the denial of his motion to suppress. The district court sentenced Burks to 84 months’ imprisonment to run concurrent to his 76-year state term of imprisonment. He now challenges the denial of his motion to suppress and the calculation of his sentence. We affirm.
