United States v. Carrero-Hernandez, No. 10-1252 (1st Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
Defendant was sentenced to 360 months in prison and five years supervised release following conviction for involvement in a scheme to import large quantities of cocaine into Puerto Rico. The First Circuit affirmed. Although defendant's attempt at flight was brief and did not involve high speeds, it did create a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury, justifying section 3C1.2 sentence enhancement. The record was adequate to support a finder that defendant was leader or organizer for purposes of enhancement under section 3B1.1(a).
