US v. Parker, No. 08-4199

By FindLaw Staff on August 14, 2009 3:42 PM

Sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in imposing consecutive prison terms under 18 U.S.C. sec. 924(c)(1)(A)(i) as the Whitley/Williams rule has no bearing on this case since the predicate drug crime underlying defendant's conviction does not dictate a mandatory minimum sentence; and 2) any error by the district court in calculating defendant's criminal history category was harmless.
