US v. Castleman, 12-1371

Defendant's prior conviction for "intentionally or knowingly causing bodily injury to" the mother of his child does qualify as a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" for purposes of defendant's indictment under 18 U.S.C. section 922(g)(9), which forbids the possession of firearms by anyone convicted of a "misdemeanor crime of domestic violence," and the Sixth Circuit erred in concluding otherwise.
