US v. Clinton, No. 09-2464

By FindLaw Staff on January 19, 2010 9:14 AM

District court's conviction and imposition of an enhanced sentence on a defendant for unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is affirmed where: 1) the police's search was reasonable and a gun thus was admissible because there was probable cause to search the car, defendant consented to the search, and the police would inevitably have discovered the gun during an inventory search of the vehicle; and 2) the district court acted properly in finding that defendant had been previously convicted of a crime of violence under the Guidelines.
