Minneapolis Firearms Charges Attorney

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether defendant’s sentence for firearms offenses was not substantively unreasonable?    

Defendant was convicted of firearms offenses.  Defendant appealed his sentence.  Defendant challenged the District Court’s calculation of the Guidelines range and argued that he was entitled to a sentence reduction.  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that defendant failed to show that he was entitled to a sentencing reduction for possessing ammunition for a lawful sporting purpose.  Accordingly, the District Court did not err in calculating defendant’s Guidelines range, nor abuse its discretion in varying upward after considering the relevant statutory factors.  Affirmed.

United States v. Sholley-Gonzalez, 21-3133, per curiam.  Appealed from United States District Court, Southern District of Iowa.

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