The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was published after IL deadline on Tuesday:
United States of America v. Sergio Gamez
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.
