US v. Dismuke, 08-1693

Conviction of defendant for being a felon in possession of a firearm and sentence to a statutorily mandated 15-year prison term based on three prior convictions is affirmed where: 1) the guns at issue were properly admitted at trial and an affidavit contained enough independent corroboration to support probable cause to search defendant's home; and 2) Wisconsin's vehicular-fleeing offense qualifies as a violent felony under the ACCA.
