US v. Mercado Flores, 15-1859

Vacating an order entered after the imposition of sentence in a criminal matter where the court ruled on a jurisdictional matter when it realized that the law under which a conviction was entered might not apply to Puerto Rico since it is not a 'territory or possession of the United States' and vacated and dismissed its own sentence because a district court has no jurisdiction to vacate, alter, or revise a sentence previously imposed.
