US v. Beane, No. 08-3769

By FindLaw Staff on October 20, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's drug distribution sentence is affirmed where: 1) it was not error for the district court to consider whether a particular sentence would be reversed on appeal; and 2) because defendant was sentenced as a career offender under U.S.S.G. section 4B1.1, his offense level was determined by the statutory maximum penalty for the offense of conviction, not by section 2D1.1 and its crack-powder ratio.
