US v. Thomas, No. 08-3946

By FindLaw Staff on January 31, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction for distributing crack cocaine is affirmed where: 1) considering the similarities between the crimes charged and the subsequent-acts evidence introduced by the government, the mere passage of four years' time between the events did not render the evidence irrelevant to show knowledge or intent; and 2) the evidence rationally  supported an inference that defendant sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant in violation of 21 U.S.C. sections 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(C).
