United States v. Leahy, No. 10-2433 (1st Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Following vacation of his original sentence for conviction as a felon in possession of a firearm, 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1), and remand for resentencing, the district court sentenced defendant to a 10-year term. The First Circuit affirmed. The court upheld a four-level enhancement for possessing a firearm "in connection with another felony offense," USSG 2K2.1(b)(6)(B); a two-level enhancement for obstruction of justice; and calculation of the criminal history level. The court articulated a plausible sentencing rationale and imposed a sentence within the range of reasonable outcomes.
