US v. Warren, 09-1228
Conviction of a defendant for bank robbery and using a firearm during a robbery at the second trial after the jury in the first trial was unable to reach a verdict is affirmed where: 1) double jeopardy did not bar defendant's second trial as defendant has not shown any error, let alone plain error, in the district court's decision to discharge the first jury; and 2) the circumstantial evidence supports a finding of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
