SENTENCING Residual Clause; Successive Motion

 

Where a defendant sought authorization to file a successive motion to vacate, set aside or correct his sentence, arguing that his sentence exceeded the statutory maximum in light of Johnson v. U.S., which held that the residual clause of 18 U.S.C. Section 924(e) (2) (B)(ii) was unconstitutionally vague, circuit precedent required that the defendant’s motion be granted.

Motion granted.
