Safety-valve Eligibility Requires Defendant to Act

U.S. v. Salgado-Meza, 2012 WL 3264351 (8/13/12) (Col.) (unpub'd) - The defendant could not satisfy the disclosure requirement for safety-valve eligibility by noting that the government already knew everything from all of the wiretaps. He needed to take an affirmative step of some sort, even if none of what he said would be useful to the government.
