United States v. Cluff

The Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of defendant's motion for a new trial, holding that the Government did not breach the plea agreement. In this case, the Government was not estopped from recommending that the district court deny a reduction for acceptance of responsibility and to instead apply a two-level increase for obstructing justice. Furthermore, the record did not support defendant's claim of prosecutorial vindictiveness. View "United States v. Cluff" on Justia Law
