United States of America, Appellee, v. Jeffrey Lane Fallis, Appellant, 48 F.3d 1225 (8th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 48 F.3d 1225 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted: Mar. 6, 1995. Filed: Mar. 14, 1995

Before McMILLIAN, LOKEN, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


In March 1990, following his guilty plea to a federal offense, Jeffrey Lane Fallis was sentenced to 26 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In April 1993, while he was serving his supervised-release term, the district court1  found that he had violated release conditions and revoked his supervised release. The court ordered Fallis to serve 11 months in prison and thereafter to serve his remaining supervised-release term. In August 1994, while Fallis was back on supervised release, the district court again found that he had violated release conditions and revoked supervised release. This time, the court sentenced him to 11 months in prison with no further period of supervised release. Fallis appeals, arguing that the district court lacked authority to sentence him to 11 months in prison because the sentence extended beyond the expiration date of his supervised- release term.

This argument is foreclosed by this circuit's established case law. See United States v. Krabbenhoft, 998 F.2d 591, 593-94 (8th Cir. 1993); see also United States v. Love, 19 F.3d 415, 416-17 (8th Cir.), cert. denied, 115 S. Ct. 434 (1994).

Accordingly, we affirm Fallis's sentence.


The HONORABLE JOHN B. JONES, Senior United States District Judge for the District of South Dakota
