United States v. Coombs, No. 16-1246 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Defendant entered a conditional guilty plea to possession with intent to distribute alpha-PHP and obstruction of justice, reserving the right to appeal the denial of four of his five motions to suppress. On appeal, Defendant challenged the district court’s denial of his four motions to suppress and claimed sentencing error. The First Circuit affirmed, holding (1) the district court did not commit clear error in denying Defendant’s four motions to suppress incriminating evidence; and (2) the district court did not err in fashioning Defendant’s sentences, which were substantively reasonable.
