  United States v. Jameal Gould - Fourth Circuit
Headline: Pro Se Inmate Convinces Fourth Circuit to Re-examine Sentence

Area of Law: Sentencing

Issues Presented: Whether there was sufficient evidence to support the district court's finding that there was an intervening arrest that affected the computation of the criminal history score.

Brief Summary: Jameal Gould contended that his criminal history score was incorrectly computed. Specifically, Gould maintained that his two Maryland convictions should not have been counted separately because there was no intervening arrest between the commission of the two offenses. The Fourth Circuit found the sentencing record to be inconclusive on this issue and remanded the case to the district court to resolve this factual discrepancy.
