US v. Robertson, No. 08-3126

Defendant's firearm possession sentence is affirmed where: 1) Defendant's unconvicted conduct provided the District Court with an appropriate ground for departure under U.S.S.G. section 4A1.3(a)(2)(E), and 2) Defendant's criminal history and propensity to recidivate placed him outside the heartland of typical cases considered in drafting the Guidelines.
