US v. Gordon, 16-1896

Affirming the district court's conviction of a man who tried to hire a hitman to kill his wife who turned out to be an undercover cop and then tried to hire a second killer to kill the first who also turned out to be an undercover officer, holding that the objection to the introduction of character evidence could not be pursued because a bald objection was not specific enough to preserve it for review and there was no indication that the admission influenced the outcome of the trial, but directing the district court to merge five multiplicitous counts into a single one for resentencing.
