US v. Taylor, 10-2947
Prior state conviction for Class C felony battery a crime of violence
US v. Taylor, 10-2947, In a prosecution of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm, district court's imposition of a 64-month sentence, based in part on its conclusion that defendant's prior state conviction for Class C felony battery qualified as a "crime of violence," is affirmed as the offense of which defendant was convicted - touching someone in a rude, insolent, or angry manner by means of a deadly weapon - qualifies as a crime of violence because such will ordinarily involve the threatened use of physical force.
