Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Knoxville.
No. 3:16-cr-00058-1—Thomas A. Varlan, Chief District Judge.
Argued: April 26, 2018
Decided and Filed: May 8, 2018
Before: GUY, SUTTON, and COOK, Circuit Judges.
COOK, Circuit Judge. This appeal presents the latest episode in the saga of determining
whether a prior conviction is a “violent felony” for purposes of the Armed Career Criminal Act’s
sentencing enhancement. Guided by canons of statutory construction, we hold that Kentucky
second-degree burglary categorically qualifies as generic burglary under the ACCA and
AFFIRM the sentence.
