151120U.pdf 11/25/2015 United States v. Laron Gray U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 15-1120 U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Riley, Chief Judge, and Beam and Kelly, Circuit Judges] Criminal case - Sentencing. The district court did not err in determining that the evidence presented at the sentencing hearing satisfied the government's relatively low burden of proving that the relevant drug-dealing conduct occurred prior to a date that made defendant's three prior offenses includable in defendant's criminal history; as a result, his sentencing guidelines calculations were the same even without operation of the arguably unconstitutional residual clause of the career offender Guideline, and any error in applying that Guideline was harmless. 151556U.pdf 11/25/2015 United States v. Leslie Schulz U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 15-1556 U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Riley, Chief Judge, and Beam and Kelly, Circuit Judges] Criminal case - Criminal law. While defendant's challenge to his attorney's effectiveness at sentencing is not precluded by his appeal waiver, the record concerning ineffective assistance of counsel is not sufficiently developed for review on direct appeal, and defendant must bring the claim in a Section 2255 proceeding.
