In Re: Grand Jury, 06-2819

Criminal contempt conviction for failure to comply with a grand jury subpoena and denial of motion to quash search warrant for blood and saliva samples are affirmed where: 1) The district court properly found appellant in contempt since the grand jury subpoena met all applicable requirements; 2) the five-month sentence was excluded from guidelines coverage and not an abuse of discretion; and 3) the court lacks jurisdiction over the motion to quash since it is an interlocutory appeal and did not fall within any exception to the general rule limiting jurisdiction to final orders or decisions.
