PEARCE, Defendant-Appellant. ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Western Division. No. 06 CR 50031 Philip G. Reinhard, Judge. Counsel for the appellant in this case concedes that, unless the Supreme Court should overrule Almendarez-Torres v. United States, 523 U.S. 224 (1998), there is no basis for disturbing the judgment. Only the Supreme Court is entitled to overrule one of its own decisions, so the appeal cannot succeed in this court. The issue has been preserved for presentation to a higher tribunal. AFFIRMED.
