Felon in possession of firearm

Whether the District Court did not err in its sentence on felon in possession of a firearm conviction?    

Defendant pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a firearm in federal court.  The District Court did an upward variance when it sentenced defendant.  Defendant appealed. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that because the District Court adequately explained the sentence, correctly calculated the range, and adequately explained the reasons for the upward variance, the District Court correctly sentenced defendant on his felon in possession of a firearm conviction.

United States v. Brown, per curiam.  Appealed from the United States District Court, Western District of Missouri.

Minneapolis Firearms Charges Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
