Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Felon in Possession Appeal Dismissed
In US v. Harris, No. 09-50113, the court dismissed defendant's appeal from his sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition where defendant validly waived his right to challenge a sentence within a Guideline range, even if his sentence included the "crime of violence" enhancement.
As the court wrote: "On March 10, 2008, Harris pleaded guilty, pursuant to a written plea agreement, to being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1). At sentencing, the government requested that Harris's sentence be enhanced pursuant to U.S.S.G. § 2K2.1(a) based on Harris's previous first-degree burglary conviction in California state court."
