United States v. Lomax, No. 17-2925 (8th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed defendant's sentence after he pleaded guilty to distribution of methamphetamine, possession of an unregistered destructive device, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The court held that the district court did not err by imposing a four-level sentencing enhancement under USSG 2K2.1(b)(5) for trafficking in firearms because defendant had reason to believe the buyer intended to use the weapons unlawfully.
