US v. Charles, No. 08-3212

By FindLaw Staff on August 12, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession sentence is vacated where the district court did not have the benefit of the Supreme Court's decision in Chambers v. United States, 129 S. Ct. 687 (2009), which cast doubt as to whether defendant's conviction under 28 U.S.C. section 751(a) was a crime of violence.
