Nevyou Alemu appeals his conviction after a bench trial for
conspiracy to possess stolen firearms and aiding and abetting
the possession of stolen firearms, in violation of 18 U.S.C.
§§ 2, 371, 922(j), 924(a)(2) (2012).
Alemu’s only assertion on
appeal is that the district court erred in refusing to admit
into evidence a disc containing audio recordings of his related
state court proceedings.
This Court reviews a district court’s evidentiary rulings
for abuse of discretion.
746, 751 (4th Cir. 2011).
United States v. Medford, 661 F.3d
Thus, we “afford the evidentiary
ruling substantial deference, and will not overturn the ruling
(internal quotation marks omitted).
Our review of the record
reveals no abuse of the district court’s discretion in excluding
the evidence under Fed. R. Evid. 608(b).
Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s judgment.
this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
