Where a defendant challenged his sentence under the ACCA arguing that the district court erred in allowing the government to supplement the record at resentencing with state court judicial records, the judgment is affirmed because reopening the record was not an abuse of discretion in light of changes in the law, and according to prior decisions the Arkansas battery convictions were violent felonies under the force clause.
Judgment is affirmed.
