United States v. Diaz-Rodriguez, No. 15-1307 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Pursuant to a plea agreement, Appellant pled guilty to aiding and abetting others in obstructing commerce and the movement of articles and commodities in such commerce by robbery (count one) and aiding and abetting others in the possession of a firearm that was discharged during a robbery (count two). The trial court sentenced Appellant to 120 months as to count one and another 120 months as to count two, to be served consecutively. Appellant appealed, arguing that there was an insufficient factual basis for the court’s acceptance of his guilty plea as to count two. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that the district court did not err in accepting Appellant’s guilty plea with regards to count two.
