U.S. v. Peters, 05-2554

Enhanced sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon is affirmed where the defendant was not entitled to have a beyond-a-reasonable-doubt jury determination of the fact and nature of his prior convictions, and the court properly concluded that his two battery convictions were crimes of violence for purposes of calculating his advisory sentencing range.
