Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v FARSHAD GHIASSI (SD Ind., Young), an 18-page opinion, Judge Rovner writes:

Farshad Ghiassi pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1). The district court ordered him to serve a prison term of 70 months. Ghiassi appeals his sentence, contending that the district court erred as a matter of fact in finding him responsible for eight or more firearms and deprived him of due process by relying, in substantial part, on his co‐defendant’s testimony at her sentencing to make that finding. Finding no error, we affirm.
