U.S. v. Jones, 05-4272

Sentence for possession of crack with intent to distribute is affirmed over defendant's objection to the application of the sentencing guidelines where a diversionary disposition by a state court is distinguishable from a deferred prosecution for sentencing purposes, and this distinction does not undermine state law or violate the principles of federalism.
