Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 112 F.3d 514 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted April 16, 1997. Filed April 24, 1997

Before FAGG, FLOYD R. GIBSON, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


After pleading guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, two counts of carjacking, and two counts of using a firearm during a felony offense, Willard Gene Thomas appeals his guidelines sentence. Thomas's contention that the district court improperly cross-referenced the felon in possession of a firearm conviction to the guideline provision that covered criminal sexual abuse based on Thomas's uncharged rape of a carjacking victim is foreclosed by this court's contrary holdings. See United States v. Miner, No. 96-1300, 1997 WL 120211, at * 2 (8th Cir. Mar. 19, 1997); United States v. Smith, 997 F.2d 396, 397 (8th Cir. 1993) (per curiam). We thus affirm.
