Michael K. Fagan, St. Louis, MO, argued, for appellee.
Before McMILLIAN, FLOYD R. GIBSON, and LOKEN, Circuit Judges.
United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.
FLOYD R. GIBSON, Circuit Judge.
In a seven count indictment, the Government charged George A. Webster, Jr., with committing various narcotics and firearms offenses. A jury convicted Webster on all counts, and he now appeals. Though a recent Supreme Court opinion requires us to reverse Webster's conviction for violating 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1) (1994) by using or carrying a firearm "during and in relation to" a drug trafficking crime, we otherwise affirm.
