|UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
PEDRO VASQUEZ CAVAZOS, JR. (19-5141);
CHRISTOPHER LEE SERRANO (19-5186),
| Nos. 19-5141/5186|
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Kentucky at London.
No. 6:18-cr-00012—Robert E. Wier, District Judge.
Decided and Filed: February 12, 2020
Before: BATCHELDER, STRANCH, and NALBANDIAN, Circuit Judges.
NALBANDIAN, Circuit Judge. After pleading guilty to controlled substance offenses,
Pedro Cavazos and Christopher Serrano both received sentencing enhancements because of prior
controlled substance convictions. They argue on appeal that the district court improperly applied
these enhancements. We agree that Serrano does not qualify as a career offender so we
VACATE his sentence and REMAND for resentencing. But the court properly applied
Cavazos’s enhancement so we AFFIRM his sentence.
