United States v. Flowers

January 15, 1979

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, APPELLEE,
v.
KEVIN FLOWERS, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.



Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Present: HONORABLE IRVING R. KAUFMAN, Chief Judge; HONORABLE J. JOSEPH SMITH, Circuit Judge; HONORABLE INZER B. WYATT, District Judge, sitting by designation.

This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and was argued by counsel.

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, it is now hereby ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the judgment of said District Court be and it hereby is affirmed. Judge Lasker's finding that Flowers was not represented by counsel in connection with the federal gun charge at the time he was taken into custody is not clearly erroneous, and must be upheld. See United States v. Boston, 508 F.2d 1171, 1175 (2d Cir. 1974), cert. denied, 421 U.S. 1001 (1975). Accordingly, Flowers's confession was not obtained in the absence of counsel, and was properly admitted into evidence.
