US v. Lococo, 05-50550
Appeals from defendants' convictions and sentences for conspiring to possess and distribute cocaine are dismissed in part and affirmed in part, but vacated in part and remanded where the district court erred in sentencing one defendant under 21 U.S.C. section 841(b)(1)(B) based on the amount of crack "involved" in the conspiracy, without finding that defendant knew or could reasonably have foreseen that the conspiracy involved crack.
