US v. Bouknight, No. 09-4085

By FindLaw Staff on December 07, 2010 10:58 AM

Firearm Possession Sentence Affirmed

In US v. Bouknight, No. 09-4085, the court affirmed defendant's sentence for possessing a firearm after having been convicted of a felony, holding that the district court properly considered defendant's conditional discharge to be a criminal justice sentence under U.S.S.G. section 4A1.1.

 

As the court wrote:  "Defendant John F. Bouknight appeals from a judgment of conviction entered September 25, 2009 (Arterton, J.), following a guilty plea, convicting Bouknight of possessing a firearm after having been convicted of a felony in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1), and sentencing him principally to 77 months' incarceration. We assume the parties' familiarity with the facts and procedural history of this case."
