By FindLaw Staff on June 24, 2009 1:26 PM

Defendant's sentence for illegally reentering the U.S. is vacated where the district court erred in assessing a criminal history point based on Defendant's 2004 state loitering conviction, because Section 4A1.2(c)(2) of the Sentencing Guidelines provides that loitering is not a basis for enhancement.
