Felon in possession of a firearm sentence

Federal court sentence for felon in possession of a firearm and possession of drugs with intent to distribute

Defendant pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute.  Because defendant had prior felony convictions, the District Court determined that defendant was subject to an enhanced sentence under the Armed Career Criminal Act.

Where defendant failed to show that he was sentenced under the unconstitutional residual clause of the ACCA, he was not entitled to relief from his enhanced sentence.  Affirmed.

Turner v. United States, 18-2478, appealed from the Northern District of Iowa, per curiam.

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