Pg: 2 of 2
Eric Vershawn Marks appeals his 151-month sentence imposed
following his guilty plea to distribution of a quantity of cocaine
base, in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) (2012).
Johnson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015), which declared
Marks’ argument is foreclosed by the
Supreme Court’s recent decision that the Sentencing Guidelines,
including the career offender residual clause, “are not subject to
a vagueness challenge under the Due Process Clause.”
United States, ___ S. Ct. ___, ___, No. 15-8544, 2017 WL 855781,
at *9 (U.S. Mar. 6, 2017).
Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s judgment.
dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions
are adequately presented in the materials before this court and
argument would not aid the decisional process.
