US v. Plascencia-Orozco, 15-50143

Conviction and sentence for aggravated identity theft and attempted illegal reentry are affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion by denying the defendant's request for a fourth attorney; 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion by ruling that the defendant breached the terms of his 2008 plea agreement when he attempted to reenter the U.S. unlawfully in 2011; 3) the district court did not commit errors that cumulatively rendered the defendant's trial fundamentally unfair; 4) the district court did abuse its discretion in sentencing defendant to 184 months imprisonment. However, the district court lacked the authority to issue a freestanding order directing the defendant to use his true legal name.
