Criminal Law: Sentencing-Career Offender

Where a defendant in a drug-possession case challenged her sentence, arguing that an Iowa assault conviction did not qualify as a crime of violence, the defendant’s argument was foreclosed by precedent, and any error in determining that the defendant was a career offender would be harmless, so the judgment is affirmed.

Judgment is affirmed.
