Criminal – Sentencing – ‘Crime of Violence’ – Pointing a Gun (access required)

U.S. v. King The 4th Circuit upholds a 96-month sentence on defendant’s conviction of possession of a firearm as a convicted felon; the sentencing court did not err in enhancing defendant’s sentence for his prior “crime of violence” for pointing and presenting a firearm, and in treating his sentence after an Alford plea to involuntary manslaughter as a “prior sentence” under federal sentencing guidelines.
