United States v. Guzman, No. 12-11279 (5th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant, convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm, appealed the district court's denial of his motion to suppress evidence. The court vacated the conviction and sentence because the district court expressly declined to make factual findings that could have had a determinative impact on the outcome of the suppression hearing. The court remanded for further findings to ascertain, inter alia, whether the police officer asked defendant for consent to search his car.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 20, 2014.
