US v. Harris, 08-4026

Conviction of defendant for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting co-conspirator's hearsay statements; 2) district court did not err in admitting evidence seized during a traffic stop of the vehicle in which the defendant was riding based on probable cause; and 3) defendant's sufficiency of evidence challenge is without merit, as evidence presented by the government would enable a rational jury to find defendant guilty of the possession charge on which he seeks a judgment of acquittal.
