Sentencing

Armed Career Criminal Act

Where a defendant challenged his sentence under the Armed Career Criminal Act, based on his two prior North Dakota convictions for willful aggravated assault, the convictions do not qualify as violent felonies for the purposes of Section 924(e), so the denial of relief is vacated.  Denial of relief vacated; remanded.

Mountain v. U.S., 17-3771, appealed from the District of North Dakota, per curiam.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
