US v. Garcia-Caraveo, No. 08-2140
Defendant's sentence for illegal reentry into the U.S. following removal is affirmed where California's robbery statute, as interpreted by the California Supreme Court, was in line with the uniform generic definition of robbery and, therefore, the sixteen-offense-level increase imposed by the district court based on defendant's California robbery conviction was appropriate.
