US v. Ter-Esayan, No. 07-2419

Appeal from a conviction for conspiracy to commit access device fraud and aggravated identity theft is dismissed where: 1) defendant validly waived his right to appeal the guideline sentence imposed by the district court in the plea agreement; and 2) enforcing the waiver would not work a miscarriage of justice in light of the First Circuit's subsequent decision in US v. Stepanian.
