Notice and Drug Crimes pt. 2- Burrage v. United States
A Two Part Series
This is a continuation of an earlier blog regarding the case Burrage v. United States. Burrage was convicted of an additional twenty years for a drug sale that resulted in death. Burrage’s attorney took exception to the jury instruction given by the Judge that the drug, in this case heroin, did not have to be the actual cause of the death. It only had to be a contributing factor.
