Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Sentence for drug crimes and firearms possession is vacated and remanded where defendant's prior conviction for involuntary manslaughter required only a finding of recklessness and does not constitute a crime of violence under the residual clause in U.S.S.G. sec. 4B1.2(a)(2), and defendant thus does not have the requisite number of predicate convictions to authorize sentencing him as a career offender.
