US v. Flores-Blanco, 09-50040

Defendant's alien smuggling conviction is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err either in its handling of a co-defendant's invocation of the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination or in its admission of evidence of prior bad acts by defendant; and 2) there was sufficient evidence to uphold defendant's conviction, as an aider and abettor, of bringing an unauthorized alien to the U.S., as well as his conspiracy conviction.
