Counterfeit Securities Prosecution
In US v. Shabazz, No. 10-10553, a prosecution for conspiracy to utter and possess counterfeit securities, the court affirmed defendant's sentence following the revocation of his supervised release where 18 U.S.C. section 3583(e)(3) did not require aggregation of imprisonment imposed upon revocation of supervised release and affirm the district court's revocation sentence.
As the court wrote: "Defendant-Appellant Stephanie Hampton was sentenced to 24 months' imprisonment when her supervised release was revoked. On appeal, Hampton argues that her revocation sentence was illegal because, when aggregated with her prior revocation sentence, the amount of imprisonment exceeded the maximum amount of supervised release authorized for her original offense, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(3). We hold that § 3583(e)(3) does not require aggregation of imprisonment imposed upon revocation of supervised release and AFFIRM the district court's revocation sentence."
