US v. Jeffries, No. 08-3003

By FindLaw Staff on June 25, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for abusive sexual contact of a child is reversed and remanded where: 1) defendant's challenge to the government's performance under the plea agreement is rejected as any error is neither clear nor obvious; and 2) the district court erred in increasing the criminal history category by concluding defendant had a prior sex offense conviction as there was no record evidence the victim in the prior crime was a minor as required by U.S.S.G. sec. 4B1.5(a).
