United States v. Peters, No. 12-1345 (1st Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
Appellant appealed a judgment of the U.S. district court sentencing him to thirty-three months' imprisonment for failing to register as a sex offender. In calculating a range for his sentence under the sentencing guidelines, the district court included two additional criminal history points because Appellant was under a criminal justice sentence when he failed to register. Appellant contended that he was not under a criminal justice sentence at that time. The First Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that Appellant was under a criminal justice sentence when he failed to register, and therefore, the district court's sentencing calculation was sound.
