CASE ENTRY

United States v. Rowe

Man purchases as much as 1,700 grams of heroin from a dealer over the course of several months. Surprise! The purchaser is a confidential informant. Does the dealer get the 10-year mandatory minimum for distributing 1,000-plus grams? The Third Circuit says no; each sale is a distinct offense, and the gov’t didn’t show that any single sale was for 1,000 grams or more.
