Criminal Practice – Sentencing – Firearm Possession – Prior Assault Conviction (access required)

U.S. v. Donell In sentencing defendant for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, a district court could not use an unincorporated “statement of probable cause” to establish a prior assault conviction as a “crime of violence” in order to enhance defendant’s firearm sentence, and the 4th Circuit vacates the 78-month sentence and remands for resentencing.
