U.S. v. Rodriquez, 04-30397
Conviction for possession of a firearm by a felon is affirmed where: 1) the search that uncovered the weapon was conducted pursuant to a valid consent; 2) there was sufficient evidence to support the jury-s finding that defendant possessed the firearm; and 3) the district court correctly relied on United States v. Corona-Sanchez, 291 F.3d 1201 (9th Cir. 2002) in holding that defendant-s prior drug convictions did not qualify as predicate offenses under the Armed Career Criminals Act.
