US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 48 F.3d 1229 (9th Cir. 1995) Submitted Feb. 21, 1995. *Decided Feb. 28, 1995

Before: SCHROEDER, CANBY, and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.

Bulla-Henao contends the government breached the plea agreement by not recommending a downward departure for Bulla-Henao under U.S.S.G. Sec. 2D1.1, Application Note 16, for having a base offense level that overrepresents the defendant's culpability in the criminal activity.

Consequently, his waiver of the right to appeal is enforceable." United States v. Robertson, 40 F.3d 1046, 1049 (9th Cir. 1994). Bulla-Henao's appeal from the judgment of the district court is



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
