US v. Young, No. 08-1394

By FindLaw Staff on September 04, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession conviction and sentence are affirmed where: 1) neither defendant nor his counsel clearly expressed an intention to preserve a suppression of evidence issue on appeal; and 2) defendant's conviction for fleeing and eluding law enforcement involved conduct that presented a serious potential risk of physical injury to another and was thus a violent felony under the Armed Career Criminal Act.
