US v. Moran, 06-2175
Defendant's conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm is affirmed over claims that the district court: 1) erred in refusing to grant a motion to suppress evidence; 2) abused its discretion by admitting evidence of a prior conviction under Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b); and 3) erred by failing to instruct the jury on his theory of defense.
