Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana decision today
In U.S. v. Woolsey (SD Ind., CJ Hamilton), a 20-page opinion, Judge Rovner writes:
Charles Woolsey was convicted of drug and firearms offenses after police executed a search warrant at his residence and discovered a cache of guns, cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine. On appeal Woolsey challenges the denial of his motion to suppress the evidence seized at his house, as well as the district court’s exclusion of two witnesses at his jury trial. The government cross-appeals and argues that at sentencing the district court erred in refusing to impose a life term on his conviction for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. We affirm Woolsey’s convictions but vacate his sentence on the methamphetamine count and remand with directions to impose a life term on that count.
