US v. Lee, No. 08-14724

By FindLaw Staff on October 26, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession conviction is affirmed where defendant lacked standing to contest a search that led to the discovery of the gun at issue because the search was of a co-defendant's car.  However, his sentence is reversed where a non-violent "walkaway" escape is not a violent felony for purposes of the Armed Career Criminal Act.
