US v. Daye, No. 08-1012

By FindLaw Staff on July 10, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm is vacated and remanded where: 1) defendant's prior state conviction for engaging in a sexual act with a minor satisfies the standard articulated in Begay and is therefore a violent felony under the residual clause of the Armed Career Criminal Act; and 2) the District Court must consider of remand whether Defendant's escape conviction constitutes a conviction for a violent felony under Chambers, and whether his two prior state convictions stem from conduct committed on different occasions for purposes of the Act.
