CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether defendant’s sentence in federal court for sale of stolen firearms was correct?
Defendant was convicted of conspiring to sell stolen firearms. He appealed his sentence. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that (1) there was adequate support in the record for a firearms trafficking enhancement, and (2) that the District Court had properly denied a reduction for acceptance of responsibility because he later attempted to deny at sentencing what he admitted in the plea agreement. Affirmed.
United States v. Anderson, 19-3106, per curiam. Appealed from the United States District Court, Western District of Arkansas.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
