United States v. Miranda-Martinez, No. 14-1149 (1st Cir. 2015)Annotate this Case
Defendant was indicted in two separate indictments for drug trafficking crimes. The cases were consolidated, and Defendant pled guilty to count one in both indictments pursuant to a plea agreement. The district court sentenced Defendant to 293 months’ imprisonment for count one in each of the two cases, with the terms to be served concurrently. The First Circuit affirmed, holding (1) the government did not breach the terms of the plea agreement due to the prosecutor’s remarks relating to Defendant’s possession of firearms during the time period alleged in the second indictment; and (2) the district court did not err in imposing a two-level firearm enhancement under the United States Sentencing Guidelines.
