Criminal Law: Sentencing-Prior Felony Convictions

Where a defendant challenged his sentence in a felon-in-possession case, the defendant refused to stipulate to his status as a convicted felon, so the district court did not err in admitting evidence of multiple prior convictions after concluding that the probative value of the evidence was not outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice.

Judgment is affirmed.

U.S. v. Johnson (MLW No. 79948/Case No. 22-1516 – 6 pages) (U.S. Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit, per curiam) Appealed from U.S. District Court, Western District of Missouri.
