US v. Castro-Guevarra, 08-40796
Defendant's sentence for illegally reentering the U.S. is affirmed where the district court properly enhanced defendant's base offense level based on his previous conviction for sexual assault of a child, because that offense constituted a "crime of violence" under U.S.S.G. section 2L1.2(b).
