US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Opinions
United States v. Stubblefield
Opinion Date: November 7, 2019
Judge: Per Curiam
Areas of Law: Criminal Law, White Collar Crime
The Fifth Circuit affirmed defendant's sentence imposed after she was convicted of mail fraud, wire fraud, theft of public money, aggravated identity theft, and unlawful monetary transactions. The court held that the district court did not clearly err by applying a two level sentencing enhancement under USSG 3C1.1 for obstruction of justice. In light of the factual findings of this case, the district court concluded that defendant obstructed a governmental investigation that was in progress or would be coming about.
