  • United States of America v. Brandon Moorefield

    Monday Mar 20 | via FindLaw 

    The appellant Brandon Moorefield appeals from a jury conviction of one count of possession of firearm after having been convicted of a felony, in violation of 18 U.S.C. A 922 , for which he was sentenced to 70 months' imprisonment. He challenges his conviction on two grounds: first, that the District Court abused its discretion by instructing the jury that they may consider evidence of flight as probative of consciousness of guilt; and second, that A 922 is facially unconstitutional because it exceeds Congress's power to legislate on interstate commerce.

Can i still be charged with DUI
I was in a single car accident tilting my car on its side completely. I was taken to the hospital where they did a CT scan and drew my blood. They didnt tell me the reason for drawing blood but i assume for alcohol. I was drinking a little earlier that night which was on Jan 14TH. The police officer took my Drivers License in the midst of everything and released me from hospital to go home.
