United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. John F. Zhang, Defendant-appellant, 119 F.3d 8 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 119 F.3d 8 (9th Cir. 1997) Argued and Submitted June 5, 1997Filed July 21, 1997

Before BRUNETTI and O'SCANNLAIN, Circuit Judges, and HOGAN,**  Chief District Judge.


Appellant John F. Zhang appeals the district court's imposition of a two-level sentence enhancement based on victim vulnerability under United States Sentencing Guidelines ("U.S.S.G.") section 3A1.1. Because the district court's finding that appellant's victim was particularly susceptible to the criminal conduct was not clearly erroneous, the district court did not err in imposing a two level enhancement under USSG 3A1.1.



The Honorable Michael R. Hogan, Chief District Court Judge for the District of Oregon, sitting by designation
