US v. Corona-Gonzalez, 09-3993

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

Sentence of defendant convicted for drug and firearm related offenses reversed

US v. Corona-Gonzalez, 09-3993, concerned a challenge to the district court's imposition of a sentence of 300 months' imprisonment and a term of five years of supervised release, in a prosecution of defendant for drug and firearm related offenses.  In reversing the sentence, the court remanded the case for resentencing in holding that the district court committed plain error during defendant's sentencing hearing as there is nothing in the record to support the district court's statements at the sentencing hearing regarding defendant's prior removal and reentry into the United States, and this plain error affected defendant's substantial rights.
