US v. Lawing, 11-4896

In challenge to defendant's conviction for possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and denial of his motion to suppress evidence, judgment is affirmed where: 1) defendant's multiplicity of charges claim lacks merit; 2) the district court did not err in denying the motion to suppress because the government demonstrated by a preponderance of the evidence that police had a reasonable, articulable suspicion sufficient to stop defendant's car, established that defendant was the person with whom the confidential informant arranged the drug deal, and had probable cause to search defendant's vehicle; 3) the district court properly denied defendant's Rule 29 motions because the government put forth sufficient evidence upon which the jury could conclude that he constructively possessed the ammunition; and 4) defendant's sentence was not procedurally unreasonable.
