Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today
In U.S. v. Redmond (SD Ind., Young), a 25-page opinion, Judge Flaum writes:
This is the consolidated appeal of Charles Avery, Jr. and Michael Redmond. Avery pled guilty to crack cocaine distribution in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1); he appeals the district court’s denial of his request to withdraw his guilty plea, the calculation of the crack cocaine quantity attributed to him, as well as his sentence. Redmond pled guilty to crack cocaine distribution conspiracy in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 846 and appeals only his sentence. For the following reasons we affirm as to Avery, and issue a limited remand as to Redmond for the limited purpose of allowing the district court to reconsider his sentence in light of United States v. Corner, 598 F.3d 411 (7th Cir. 2010).
