Drugs and guns

CASE LAW UPDATE:   Guns near drugs will get you a longer sentence in federal court.    

Where a defendant challenged his sentence, arguing that the District Court miscalculated the guidelines range, a 2 level firearm enhancement was not clearly erroneous given the weapons’ close proximity to the defendant’s drug trafficking activities.  Affirmed.

United States v. Bell, 21-1005.  Appealed from the United States District Court, Northern District of Iowa.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
