US v. Carr, No. 08-5037

By FindLaw Staff on January 27, 2010 7:59 AM

Conviction of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm and sentence as an armed career criminal to 262 months' imprisonment is affirmed as, although defendant's crimes are substantively the same and arguably had the same criminal objective, the combination of factors establishes that defendant's prior felonies were separate and distinct criminal episodes for purposes of the ACCA.
