United States v. Quigley, No. 18-3317 (8th Cir. 2019)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed defendant's 240 month sentence imposed after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine and 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine. The court held that defendant's prior conviction for assault with intent to inflict serious injury in violation of Iowa Code 708.2(1) and 903.1(2) qualified as a crime of violence under the career-offender enhancement, because the crime necessarily involved the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force.
