Sufficiency of evidence; out of court statements

Where the testimony of an informant was consistent with the observations of law enforcement and information obtained from an investigation, the evidence was sufficient to support defendant's convictions in a drug trafficking conspiracy, and the judgment is affirmed because the defendant did not show that the trial court erred in admitting statements of a coconspirator.  Judgment is affirmed.

U.S. v. Peebles, 17-1126, appealed from the Eastern District of Missouri, Erickson, J.

Lynne Torgerson, Esq. was not attorney of record in this case.
