US v. Cornell, 13-4630

In this case arising from the prosecution of several members of a violent street gang known as the Latin Kings, defendants were convicted of conspiracy to violate the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO, 18 U.S.C. section 1962(d)) based on their activities in connection with a North Carolina chapter of the gang. Defendants challenge the judgment, making several assertions of error, individually and jointly, as to the district court's jury instructions and the sufficiency of the evidence. The judgment of the district court is affirmed, where there is no reversible error.
