Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Challenge to the district court's finding of career criminal
US v. Hood, 09-5027, concerned a prosecution of defendant for possession with intent to distribute marijuana and carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking offense. In affirming the district court's imposition of an enhanced sentence of 140 months' imprisonment in finding defendant to be a career criminal, the court held that the possession of a sawed-off shotgun offense constitutes a "crime of violence" for purposes of section 4B1.1(a)(2).
