Quarles v. US, 17–778

Addressed the question of when burglary qualifies as a predicate offense for enhanced sentencing under the Armed Career Criminal Act. More specifically, the narrow issue concerned what it means to remain in a building or structure with intent to commit a crime. Ultimately, held that violation of Michigan's third-degree home-invasion statute qualified as a predicate offense. Justice Kavanaugh delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court.
