United States v. Cueto-Nunez, No. 16-1700 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The First Circuit affirmed Defendant’s sentence imposed for his conviction of attempting to enter the United States after previously having been removed from the United States due to an aggravated felony. Defendant was sentenced to a term of fifty-seven years’ imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, subject to thirteen “standard” conditions. Defendant appealed both the term of imprisonment and the conditions of supervised release. The First Circuit affirmed the sentence, holding (1) the district court erred neither procedurally nor substantively in imposing the term of imprisonment; and (2) Defendant’s challenge to the nine separate conditions of supervised release to which he objected was without merit.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on September 20, 2017.
