United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Joseph John Nardi, Defendant-appellant, 56 F.3d 74 (9th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 56 F.3d 74 (9th Cir. 1995) Submitted May 16, 1995. *Decided May 18, 1995

Before: WALLACE, Chief Judge, HUG and NOONAN, Circuit Judges.


MEMORANDUM** 

Joseph John Nardi appeals his sentence under the Sentencing Guidelines imposed following his guilty plea to one count of bank robbery, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a). Nardi contends that the district court erred in refusing to allow him to attack at sentencing the validity of his prior convictions based on which Nardi was classified as a career offender pursuant to section 4B1.1 of the Sentencing Guidelines. We recently held that a defendant does not have the right to attack collaterally prior convictions before a sentencing court may count those convictions for purposes of career offender calculations. United States v. Price, No. 91-10377, slip op. 4573, 4577-79 (9th Cir. April 21, 1995). Nardi's sentence is, accordingly,

AFFIRMED.
