Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's imposition of a sentence of 86 months' imprisonment on a defendant convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm is affirmed where: 1) although defendant's reckless-endangerment conviction was not a crime of violence, defendant's evading-arrest offense was a crime of violence; and 2) the district court did not err in applying a four-level enhancement under the Guidelines in finding that, by preponderance of the evidence, the defendant used or possessed a firearm in connection with a felony chop-shop offense.
