District court's imposition of an enhanced sentence on a defendant convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm, based on prior convictions, is vacated and remanded where: 1) under Begay and Woods, defendant's conviction for first-degree reckless injury does not qualify as a crime of violence for purposes of section 2K2.1(a)(2); and 2) defendant's second-degree sexual assault conviction should not have been used to increase his offense level under section 2K2.1(a).
