87 F3d 1323 United States v. Chasteen

87 F.3d 1323

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
Arnold Robert CHASTEEN, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 95-10538.

United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.

Submitted June 11, 1996.*
Decided June 14, 1996.

NOTICE: Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3 provides that dispositions other than opinions or orders designated for publication are not precedential and should not be cited except when relevant under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel.

Before: CANBY, JOHN T. NOONAN, JR., and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.


Arnold Robert Chasteen contends that his conviction for using a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1) must be reversed in light of the Supreme Court's decision in Bailey v. United States, 116 S.Ct. 501 (1995). The government concedes that the evidence was insufficient to sustain his conviction. Accordingly, we reverse Chasteen's conviction under 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1) and remand for resentencing.
