US v. WASHINGTON, 00-3942, 01-2351
Evidence supported convictions for drug and murder-for-hire conspiracies, and prosecutor's refusal to grant immunity to defendants' proposed witnesses did not constitute prosecutorial misconduct. Refusal to sever cases or declare a mistrial when one of the defendants indicated he had bought crack from the other defendant was proper.
