Publisher Description

This consolidated appeal arises from a foiled bank robbery. The robber, Jorge Quintero, and his getaway driver and girlfriend, Claudia Martinez, challenge their sentences. Quintero pled guilty to all four counts in the indictment against him. Despite his plea agreement, the government declined to recommend a three-point reduction for acceptance of responsibility because he perjured himself and obstructed justice. Quintero argues, however, that a provision in his plea agreement required the government to recommend the reduction. Martinez was indicted on three counts and her case proceeded to trial. She contends that an erroneous jury instruction and an inaccurate computation of the Sentencing Guidelines made her sentence unreasonable. We dismiss Quinteros appeal on waiver grounds and affirm Martinezs conviction and sentence.
