Double Jeopardy & Sufficiency Challenges Fail

US v. Lindsey, Case Number: 03-2091 (12/03/04). Defendant's drug and firearm convictions are affirmed over his challenges that 1) the district court violated his double jeopardy rights when it empaneled a second jury after dismissing the original jury, and 2) the evidence was insufficient to sustain a conviction.
