Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the government's motion to dismiss is denied as defendant's appeal was not barred by his waiver of appeal rights as it fell within the scope of an exception contained in the plea agreement; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in imposing defendant's sentence as the sentence is not unreasonable and is within the applicable Guidelines range.
