Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Murder in Aid of Racketeering Conviction Affirmed
In US v. Arevalo, No. 09-0576, defendant's appeal from his convictions for conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, and of using a firearm during a crime of violence, defendant's claim of Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 32 error and his claim based on the absence of a Spanish interpreter during a portion of his sentencing proceeding were foreclosed by his appeal waiver.
As the court wrote: "Defendant-Appellant Manuel Vigil appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Sterling Johnson, Jr., Judge) convicting him, following a guilty plea, of conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1959(a)(5), and of using a firearm during a crime of violence, in violation of 18 U.S.C. section 924(c)(1)(A)(i)."
