Minneapolis Firearms Charges Attorney

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.

United States v. Garner, 20-3160, per curiam.  Appealed from United States District Court, Western District of Missouri.

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