US v. Moyer, 11-2497

In a prosecution in which one police officer was convicted 18 USC section 1519 of knowingly falsifying police reports with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation into a matter within the jurisdiction of the FBI, and another was convicted of knowingly making a false material statement in a matter within the FBI’s jurisdiction, the convictions are affirmed, where: 1) the district court did not exceed its discretion by denying, in relevant part, a motion for a bill of particulars; 2) the district court did not err by refusing to dismiss a count because it was duplicitous; 3) the district court did not exceed its discretion by refusing to enforce the bill of particulars it did order; 4) the government presented sufficient evidence to support the convictions; and 5) 18 USC section 1519 is not unconstitutionally vague.
