United States v. Fernandez-Santos, No. 15-2456 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Appellant pleaded guilty to three charges related to his act of possessing guns and drugs while he was on supervised release. The federal district court denied Appellant's motion to withdraw his guilty plea that he filed seven months after he pleaded guilty. The district court sentenced Appellant to a total of seventy-six months for the three charges. The court sentenced Appellant to an additional twenty-four months, to be served consecutively to his seventy-six-month sentence, for violating the conditions of his supervised release. The First Circuit affirmed, holding (1) the district court did not err in denying Appellant’s motion to change his plea; and (2) Appellant’s 100-month sentence was procedurally reasonable.
