CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether it was error for the District Court to not give defendant credit for acceptance of responsibility in his felon in possession of a firearm sentence?
Defendant was convicted of felon in possession of a firearm. The District Court sentenced him on his conviction of felon in possession of a firearm, but did not give him credit for acceptance of responsibility. Defendant appealed his sentence. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that because defendant had committed a violent offense after his conviction but before sentencing, he was not entitled to acceptance of responsibility.
