United States First Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

US v. Barbosa, 17-1284

Affirmed the sentencing of a defendant as a career criminal upon his conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Defendant argued that he should not have been sentenced under the Armed Career Criminal Act and that the district court should have ordered a pretrial hearing to test the sufficiency of the probable cause allegations undergirding the arrest warrant. The First Circuit rejected both of these contentions.
