US v. Arias-Mercedes, 17-1229

Affirmed a conviction on drug-smuggling charges. The defendant, who was caught with two other men aboard a vessel carrying 70 kilograms of cocaine, argued that he was a mere transporter of the contraband and thus was entitled to a minor participant reduction under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. Finding no error in the sentence, the First Circuit affirmed.
