Criminal: Sentencing-Criminal History

Where a defendant challenged his sentence after he pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, the district court procedurally erred by relying on an inflated assessment of the defendant’s criminal history, so the sentence is vacated and remanded for resentencing.

Vacated; remanded.
