US v. Seymour, 05-3904

Convictions and sentences on drug and weapons charges are affirmed over defendants' arguments that: 1) their Sixth Amendment rights were violated when the district court sentenced all defendants under 21 U.S.C. section 841(b)(1)(A) without having the jury make individualized findings regarding the quantities of drugs reasonably foreseeable to each defendant; 2) the district court erred by not suppressing a gun found in one defendant's possession during a traffic stop; 3) the district court abused its discretion when it denied the defendant's motion for a mistrial on the gun-related charge; and 4) there was insufficient evidence to support two defendants' convictions on gun-related charges.
