US v. Ashraf, 09-4002

In a conviction of a Pakistani citizen on two counts of willful failure to sign travel documents that were necessary for his departure pursuant to a final order of removal entered in 2008, district court's denial of a motion for judgment of acquittal and a ruling that excluded certain proof that defendant had sought to present in his defense, is affirmed where: 1) the government's motion to dismiss is denied as defendant's appeal is not moot; 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's motion for a judgment of acquittal as the government presented significant evidence on all of the elements of a 8 U.S.C. section 1253(a)(1)(B) offense; and 3) the district court did not abuse its discretion in its evidentiary rulings.
