US v. Higuera-Llamos, No. 07-10602

By FindLaw Staff on July 31, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction and sentence for illegal reentry following deportation are affirmed, where: 1) the district court properly admitted a prior judgment against defendant to prove alienage because it instructed the jury to consider it only for that purpose; and 2) the district court properly considered unconvicted criminal conduct in enhancing defendant's sentence.
