US v. Johnson, No. 08-3393

By FindLaw Staff on July 09, 2009 3:19 PM

Sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where there was no clerical error in defendant's sentence, as nothing in the record indicates that a relevant conduct finding involving the amount of crack cocaine was added to the overall sentencing calculation without the district court's knowledge or approval and thus there is no jurisdiction to change the finding under Fed. R. Crim. P. 36.
