US v. Cannon, No. 08-1156

By FindLaw Staff on December 28, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm and imposition of a 70-month sentence is affirmed as defendant's possession of the firearm had the potential to facilitate the offense of distribution because the record supports the inference that he possessed the loaded gun knowing that there were drugs in the SUV which were intended for sale.
