Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decided one Indiana case yesterday
In UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. PHILLIP RUCKER (ND Ind., Lozano), a 14-page opinion, Judge Frederick J. Kapala of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, sitting by designation, writes:
After a jury found defendant, Phillip Rucker, guilty of one count of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343, the district court sentenced him to 30 months’ imprisonment, one year of supervised release, and ordered him to pay $73,488.95 in restitution. In this direct criminal appeal, Rucker contends that the district court erred in refusing to allow him to use a prior conviction to impeach a testifying co-defendant. We affirm.
