United States v. Vazquez-Vazquez, No. 15-2073 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
In 2011, Defendant pled guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances. In 2015, the district court determined that Defendant had violated the conditions of his supervised release, revoked supervised release, and sentenced Defendant to thirty-six months’ imprisonment. Defendant challenged his sentence on appeal. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that, in light of the particular details of Defendant’s criminal history and the seriousness of the violations of the conditions of supervised release, the district court did not abuse its discretion in sentencing Defendant, and the sentence was both procedurally and substantively reasonable.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on March 29, 2017.
