United States v. Hall, No. 12-11343 (11th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed his sentence after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a handgun. At issue on appeal was whether defendant's sentence was properly enhanced by his prior 2006 felony conviction for possession of an unregistered sawed-off shotgun. The court held that possession of an unregistered sawed-off shotgun qualified as a crime of violence under the Sentencing Guidelines and affirmed defendant's sentence.
