US v. Cohn, No. 07-13479

By FindLaw Staff on October 01, 2009 2:51 PM

Defendant's criminal contempt sentence is vacated where no single sentencing guideline applied to 18 U.S.C. section 401 because criminal contempt was an offense sui generis that could not be classified pursuant to 18 U.S.C. section 3559, and thus the district court erred in classifying criminal contempt as a Class A felony.
