CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether defendant was not entitled to a jury instruction on conspiracy withdrawal?
Defendant was convicted of conspiracy. Defendant appealed. On appeal, defendant argued that his conviction had to be reversed because the District Court erred in not giving a jury instruction on withdrawal from the conspiracy and he allegedly withdrew from the conspiracy. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that that because the statute did not require proof of an overt act, the District Court did not err in not giving a jury instruction on withdrawal from the conspiracy. Affirmed.
