US v. Linzy, 09-2046

Conviction of defendant for conspiracy to distribute, possession with intent to distribute various controlled substances and sentence to a term of life imprisonment, ten years' supervised release, and a $200 special assessment are affirmed where the district court did not abuse its discretion in limiting cross-examination of a witness (co-defendant) concerning the nature of his arrest warrant, as the jury had abundant evidence to appraise the witness's motivation for testifying.
