US v. Cox, 09-3956

Defendant's conviction for knowingly possessing a firearm after three prior violent felony convictions is affirmed where the jury asked a question of law, and the district court’s response properly directed the jury away from this line of reasoning back to the proper focus of whether the charged offense had been proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
