US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Opinions
United States v. Eustice
Opinion Date: March 18, 2020
Judge: Stephen Andrew Higginson
Areas of Law: Criminal Law
The Fifth Circuit affirmed defendant's 84 month sentence imposed after he pleaded guilty, without a plea agreement, to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute an unspecified amount of methamphetamine. The court held that the district court did not clearly err in calculating the quantity of meth attributable to defendant; the district court did not err by applying a two-level sentencing enhancement for maintaining a drug premises under USSG 2D1.1(b)(12); and the district court properly assigned two criminal history points.
