US v. Angel, No. 08-5158

By FindLaw Staff on August 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's drug and firearm sentence is affirmed where the district court properly enhanced defendant's sentence pursuant to U.S.S.G. section 2K2.1(b)(6) because the presence of multiple loaded firearms and ammunition in defendant's bedroom, in close proximity to the processed marijuana and marijuana plants on the perimeters of his property, was not the result of accident or coincidence, but rather was conveniently made available to facilitate the manufacture of marijuana.
