United States v. Hammond (P)

New York statutory robbery, irrespective of the degree of the offense, is a crime of violence under U.S. Sentencing Guidelines § 4B1.2(a)(1), because it necessarily involves the “use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against the person of another.” The district court did not err in sentencing the appellant as a “career offender.”

Affirmed.

United States v. Hammond (P), No. 17-4702, Jan. 4, 2019. 4th Cir. (Keenan) from WDNC at Charlotte (Conrad).
