United States v. Lasseque, No. 14-2026 (1st Cir. 2015)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of aiding and abetting a bank robbery and conspiring to commit a bank robbery. At sentencing, the district court applied a weapon enhancement and an obstruction of justice enhancement and sentenced Defendant to a term of incarceration of 140 months. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that the district court (1) did not err in denying Defendant’s motion for judgment of acquittal, as the government provided sufficient evidence to enable the jury to find Defendant guilty of the charged offenses; and (2) did not err in applying the weapon enhancement and obstruction of justice enhancement.
