Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's sentence of a defendant to a mandatory life imprisonment for drug and firearm offenses is affirmed where, although the government's enhancement notice may not be in compliance with 21 U.S.C. section 851(a)(1), as long as the defendant has actual notice of the intended use of a prior conviction to enhance his sentence, the statute has been substantially complied with.
