Criminal Practice – Restaurant Robbery – Identification – Cell Phone Calls — DNA (access required)

U.S. v. Bonner The government’s circumstantial evidence linking defendant to a Subway restaurant robbery through cell phone calls and DNA on a Yankees cap is not sufficient to identify him as a perpetrator, as store employees’ only descriptions of the two robbers were that they were African-American and wore masks and bulky coats; the 4th Circuit affirms the district court decision that overturned defendant’s armed robbery conviction.
