Massey v. United States, No. 17-1676 (2d Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
The Second Circuit affirmed the order of the district court to the extent it denied petitioner's motion to vacate his sentence under 28 U.S.C. 2255. The court held that petitioner's claim did not rely on the rule announced in Johnson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015), that New York third‐degree robbery was a crime of violence under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA), because his sentence was clearly enhanced pursuant to the force clause of the ACCA.
