By FindLaw Staff on October 15, 2009 3:42 PM

Defendant's firearm possession sentence is affirmed where the district court properly imposed an obstruction of justice enhancement because: 1) Fed. R. Crim. P. 11 had no application to guilty pleas that were not the product of a plea agreement; and 2) defendant's silence or refusal to testify were not the cause of his enhanced sentence.
