United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.

March 10, 2010.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Eileen K. Wilson (argued), John Richard Berry and James Lee Turner, Asst. U.S. Attys., Houston, TX, for U.S.

Samuel J. Buffone (argued), Buckley-Sandler, L.L.P., Washington, DC, Chris Flood, Flood & Flood, Houston, TX, for Valencia.

Before JOLLY, DeMOSS and PRADO, Circuit Judges.


Michelle Valencia and Greg Singleton appeal wire fraud convictions arising from alleged efforts to manipulate natural gas markets. Each defendant raises myriad issues on appeal, which we have considered carefully, along with an exhaustive review of the trial court's record. Confident that each defendant received a fair trial and that the convictions rest on solid evidence, we affirm.
