United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Carol Waight, Defendant-appellant, 56 F.3d 75 (9th Cir. 1995)Annotate this Case
Before: WALLACE, Chief Judge, HUG and NOONAN, Circuit Judges.
Carol Waight appeals her sentence under the Guidelines imposed following her conviction for interference with commerce by threats of violence and aiding and abetting, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1951 and 2. She contends that the district court improperly denied her request for a downward departure. We lack jurisdiction to review this contention because Waight waived the right to appeal this issue pursuant to her plea agreement with the government. See United States v. Bolinger, 940 F.2d 478, 480 (9th Cir. 1991). Waight has waived her argument that the plea agreement was unconscionable by raising the issue for the first time in her reply brief. See United States v. Bentson, 947 F.2d 1353, 1356 (9th Cir. 1991), cert. denied, 112 S. Ct. 2310 (1992).
