Minnesota Gun Charges Lawyer

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the District Court did not err in sentencing the defendant for his felon in possession of a firearm conviction?    

Defendant was convicted of felon in possession of a firearm.  The federal district court sentenced him.  Defendant appealed his sentence.  Defendant argued that disparate impact alone was sufficient to show an equal protection violation.  Defendant’s claim of disparate impact on juveniles was also rejected.  The defendant failed to show that it was error to sentence him under the Armed Career Criminal Act.  There were still 4 qualifying convictions and 3 predicate convictions which supported application of the Armed Career Criminal Act.  Affirmed.

United States v. Ronning, 20-2788, Shepherd, J.  Appealed from the United States District Court, District of Minnesota.

Minnesota Gun Charges Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
