United States v. Guerrero-Navarro, No. 12-40802 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant pled guilty to knowing unlawful presence in the United States and knowing possession of a firearm. On appeal, defendant challenged the district court's classification of his 2009 conviction of Residential Burglary under Washington state law as a crime of violence for the purposes of U.S.S.G. 2L1.2(b)(1)(A). The court concluded that the Residential Burglary offense constituted the enumerated generic crime of burglary of a dwelling, and thus the district court correctly classified defendant's prior conviction as a crime of violence for the purposes of section 2L1.2(b)(1)(A). Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 20, 2014.
