United States v. Ruckstuhl

United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit

2017 WL 6523344 (2017)

Facts

Allen Ruckstuhl (defendant) completed a prison sentence and began a term of supervised release. One day during his release, Ruckstuhl punched his girlfriend, Jasmine Jones. As Jones was running away, Ruckstuhl pointed a gun at her. While the gun was pointed at her, Jones called 911 and told the operator that Ruckstuhl had a gun. A police officer named Brenda Crispin responded to Jones’s 911 call. Immediately after the altercation, Jones told Crispin that Ruckstuhl punched her and pointed a gun at her. The government (plaintiff) contended that Ruckstuhl violated the terms of his supervised release by committing domestic violence. At the hearing before the district court, the government introduced Jones’s statements to the 911 operator and Crispin. Jones’s out-of-court statements were offered to prove the truth of what Jones said. The district court admitted the statements. Subsequently, the district court revoked Ruckstuhl’s supervised release and sent Ruckstuhl back to prison. Ruckstuhl appealed.
