In a prosecution for distributing crack cocaine, the conviction is affirmed but the sentence is vacated, where: 1) there was no abuse of discretion in the district court's disqualification of the defendant's counsel of choice because of a potential for conflict; 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the defendant a mistrial; 3) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the defendant's request to conduct a post-trial interview of an alternate juror; 4) the district court did not err in denying the defendant a mitigating role sentencing adjustment; 5) the district court's determination of the quantity of drugs involved in the offense was not clearly erroneous; and 6) the defendant fell within the class of offenders who stood to benefit from the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010.
