article description
This article mainly examines United States v. Delgado-Marrero, 744 F.3d 167 (1st Cir. 2014), to illustrate the difficulty courts still have when considering Federal Rule of Evidence 608(b)'s ban on extrinsic evidence. The prosecutor's other arguments are also examined under Federal Rules of Evidence 403 and 404(b)(1).
