IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT
United States Court of Appeals
February 21, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Lyle W. Cayce
ARTEMIO GARCIA, JR.,
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Southern District of Texas
USDC No. 7:12-CR-1410-1
Before REAVLEY, OWEN, and SOUTHWICK, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Appealing the judgment in a criminal case, Artemio Garcia, Jr., raises
an argument that he concedes is foreclosed by United States v. Betancourt, 586
F.3d 303, 308-09 (5th Cir. 2009), which held that knowledge of drug type and
quantity is not an element of the offense under 21 U.S.C. § 841. The appellant’s
motion for summary disposition is GRANTED, and the judgment of the district
court is AFFIRMED.
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH
CIR. R. 47.5.4.
