US v. Dodd, 13-4763

In this case, defendant pleaded guilty to bribing a private correctional officer and to conspiracy. At sentencing, the district court applied a four-level enhancement after finding that the offense involved a public official in a sensitive position pursuant to U.S.S.G. section 2C1.1(b)(3). Application of the sentencing enhancement is affirmed, where private correctional officers acting under the authority of the Federal Bureau of Prisons occupy a sensitive position for the purposes of section 2C1.1(b)(3).
