USA v. Turner, 14-50238

Affirmed convictions for fraud where the defendant argued that his Sixth Amendment right to counsel was violated. The Ninth Circuit found no violation because the defendant repeatedly alternated between invoking his right to counsel and his right to self-representation in order to cause trial delays. Further there was no abuse of discretion in refusing to grant funds for a mental examination when the court could determine defendant’s competency.
