By FindLaw Staff on July 28, 2009 5:44 PM

Sentence for drug crimes and firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) defendant has been convicted of the two requisite crimes to qualify as a career offender, as his state law conviction for resisting arrest constitutes a crime of violence as that term is used in U.S.S.G. sec. 4B1.1(a); and 2) the district court properly considered the 18 U.S.C. sec. 3553 (a) sentencing factors.
