Ind. Decisions - One Indiana case today from the 7th Circuit
In U.S. v. Dontrell Orlando Moore (ND Ind., Judge Springmann), a 15-page opinion, Judge Tinder, serving on a panel with Judges Posner and Wood, concludes an entertaining opinion involving a bank robbery in Fort Wayne where the bank robbers were tracked using GPS to a home not their own that they apparently commandeered, with:
Because the jury could rationally connect the dots from Moore’s presence in the house to the description of Robber #2, and because Moore’s work in the bank vault aided and abetted Warren’s use of the firearm, there was sufficient evidence to convict the defendant on both counts. His conviction is AFFIRMED.
