The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was published after IL deadline on Tuesday:
United States of America v. Sergio Gamez
22-2278
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, Hammond Division. Judge Jon E. DeGuilio.
Criminal. Vacates Sergio Gamez’s 15-year mandatory minimum federal sentence under the Armed Career Criminal Act for arson. Finds a conviction under Indiana’s 2002 arson statute does not constitute a “violent felony” within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. § 924(e), so Gamez’s arson conviction does not qualify as a crime of violence. Remands for resentencing.
