United States v. Delgado-Sanchez, No. 15-2262 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Defendant pled guilty to one count of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. The district court sentenced Defendant to an upwardly variant sentence of seventy-two months’ imprisonment followed by a three-year term of supervised release. Defendant challenged his sentence on appeal. The First Circuit affirmed, holding (1) there was no plain error in the district court’s finding that at least one of Defendant’s prior convictions was for a “crime of violence,” and therefore, Defendant’s guidelines sentence range was properly calculated; (2) Defendant’s sentence was procedurally reasonable; and (3) Defendant’s sentence was substantively reasonable.
