Sentencing in federal court

Sentence in federal court on revocation of supervised release

Well, as the saying goes . . . Don’t make a federal case out of it.  And for good reason!  They don’t mess around in federal court.

Defendant appealed from a two (2) year prison sentence imposed following the revocation of his supervised release.  On appeal, defendant argued that his sentence exceeded the statutory maximum.

Where the District Court was not obligated to consider or aggregate a prior revocation prison term when imposing a new sentence for revocation of supervised release, the District Court did not err by imposing the statutory maximum of two (2) years.  (No credit for prior time served!).  Affirmed.

United States v. Two Crow, 18-3252, appealed from the District of South Dakota, per curiam.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
