CRIMINAL LAW & PROCEDURE, SENTENCING

Puckett v. US, No. 07-9712
The plain-error test of Fed. R. Crim. P. 52(b), which instructs parties how to preserve claims of error, applies to a forfeited claim that the government failed to meet its obligations under a plea agreement, and applies in the usual fashion. Sentence for bank robbery is therefore affirmed.
