The defendant-appellant was not present when trial counsel exercised peremptory challenges or when the court read the list of jurors who were not struck into the record. Because the appellant failed to show a prejudicial impact, the error is not reversible. The district court's judgment of conviction is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 12-60707, 08-01-2013.
