United States Fourth Circuit

US v. Bell, 16-4343

Affirmed a conviction and sentence on drug-trafficking charges. The defendant lodged numerous challenges on appeal, including that the district court erred by admitting inculpatory statements obtained in violation of the defendant's Miranda rights and incorrectly imposed a mandatory minimum sentence under the Armed Career Criminal Act. Unpersuaded by his arguments, the Fourth Circuit affirmed in a 2-1 decision.
