United States Fourth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

US v. Hall, 154720

In a case where the defendant was convicted of drug crimes following the search of a home where they resided with three other people, and their constructive possession of the guns and marijuana at issue was established through the admission of their criminal record, the court found that the failure to establish the admissibility of the prior convictions by proffering any connection between the prior convictions and the charges at issue was an abuse of discretion. The decision was reversed, and the case was vacated and remanded.
