US v. Martinez-Melgar, No. 08-4569

By FindLaw Staff on January 21, 2010 9:17 AM

Sentence on a defendant convicted of drug trafficking and firearm possession is vacated and remanded for resentencing as the district court clearly erred in concluding, on the basis of the record, that defendant's admission of guilt occurred in a judicial proceeding in open court, and as such, certain criminal history points should not have been assessed.
