US v. Laurico-Yeno, No. 09-50093

By FindLaw Staff on January 04, 2010 2:47 PM

Defendant's sentence for being a deported alien found in the U.S. is affirmed where the use of physical force against the person of another was an element of California Penal Code section 273.5, and thus defendant's prior violation of that statute was a categorical crime of violence under U.S.S.G. section 2L1.2.
