United States v. Marquez-Garcia, No. 16-1294 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Defendant pleaded guilty to the unlawful possession of a machine gun. While he was on supervised release Defendant pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. Defendant was sentenced to a forty-eight-month term of imprisonment to be followed by three more years of supervised release. Thereafter, Appellant conceded a violation of his original supervised release based on the conduct underlying his felon-in-possession charge. The district court evoked the original period of supervision and sentenced Defendant to a twenty-four-month term of immurement, to run consecutively to his forty-eight-month sentence on the felon-in-possession charge. The First Circuit summarily affirmed Defendant’s sentence, holding that his sentence was neither procedurally nor substantively unreasonable.
