United States Third Circuit

US v. Smith, 13-4422

Defendant's sentence to 171 months' imprisonment for carjacking, brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, and possessing a stolen firearm, is affirmed, where: 1) the trial record fully supports the district court's finding that defendant abducted the victim, and therefore defendant's sentence was not the result of any procedural error in applying the abduction enhancement; and 2) the district court properly applied the loss enhancement because defendant exercised dominion and control, albeit temporarily, over the vehicle when he coerced the victim, against her will and at gunpoint, to drive to the bank.
