Where a defendant challenged his sentence and convictions for offenses including marijuana distribution, Hobbs Act robbery and using and carrying a firearm, the evidence was sufficient to establish a drug conspiracy, and the judgment is affirmed because the government introduced significant circumstantial evidence to support the robbery conviction and sufficient evidence to support the firearm convictions, and the sentence also is affirmed because the defendant was not prejudiced by plain error in the statutory maximum finding.
Judgment is affirmed.
