United States v. Hudson, No. 14-2124 (1st Cir. 2016)Annotate this Case
Pursuant to a plea agreement, Defendant pled guilty to possession of ammunition by a felon. The district court sentenced Defendant to a 216-month incarcerative term followed by five years of supervised release. Defendant was sentenced as an armed career criminal under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA) based on his criminal history. The First Circuit vacated Defendant’s guidelines sentence, holding (1) Defendant’s convictions for possession with intent to distribute and assault with a dangerous weapon qualify as predicates under the ACCA; but (2) the district court failed to calculate correctly Defendant’s guidelines sentencing range. Remanded for resentencing.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on May 13, 2016.
