US v. LEE, 03-3496
Defendant's perjury conviction, arising from false statements made at his detention hearing, is affirmed. Even though his testimony was withdrawn and ultimately stricken, it had the capacity to influence the magistrate judge at the time it was given. A defendant cannot perjure himself and then have his perjurious testimony stricken in order to escape prosecution.
