US v. Price, 06-3965

Conviction and sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon are affirmed over defendant's arguments that: 1) his double jeopardy rights were violated when the district court granted a mistrial and proceeded with a second trial; 2) the court erred when it refused to allow him time to investigate a police officer's perjury; 3) the court erred when it barred a police officer from testifying at trial; 4) the government failed to disclose potentially exculpatory material; 5) these errors cumulatively add up to a constitutionally deficient proceeding; and 6) the court gave inadequate weight to significant mitigating factors during sentencing.
