A drug case has been sent back to trial court for resentencing. The Client pleaded guilty in federal court to narcotics charges. At the sentencing trial counsel raised several “criminal history” related issues which were not properly considered by the trial judge, which resulted in an inappropriately high sentence. On appeal, Talmage raised these issues before the 8th Circuit. After reviewing his appellate briefs, the U.S. Attorney conceded the issue and agreed to have the case remanded back to the District Court for resentencing.
