U.S. v. Hible

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Criminal Court
Case Number: 
No. 11-2574
Decision Date: 
November 8, 2012
Federal District: 
C.D. Ill.
Dist. Ct. did not err in sentencing defendant to 240-month term of incarceration on crack cocaine distribution charges even though defendant argued that he should have been sentenced under more lenient sentencing guidelines of Fair Sentencing Act. Although defendant raised instant issue at his guilty plea hearing, defendant waived instant issue by failing to raise it at his sentencing hearing where his counsel affirmatively withdrew all objections to presentence report and agreed to lower career offender sentencing guideline range that effectively avoided hearing on relevant conduct.
