US v. Peppers, 17-1029

Vacated a mandatory minimum sentence under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA). After pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, the defendant challenged his 15-year sentence, arguing that he was sentenced under a portion of the ACCA later held unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Finding merit in his contentions, the Third Circuit remanded for an analysis of whether the error of treating his Pennsylvania robbery convictions as predicate offenses under the ACCA was harmless in light of his other prior convictions.
