US v. Caldwell, No. 08-3011

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on November 09, 2009 3:36 PM

Defendant's crack cocaine distribution sentence is affirmed in part where: 1) the district court appropriately relied on an informant's testimony to find that defendant had produced crack; and 2) production of three ounces of crack qualified as relevant conduct under the Sentencing Guidelines. However, the sentence is reversed in part where the district court erred in attributing two points to defendant for committing one of the offenses of conviction while serving under a criminal justice sentence.
