18-78 8th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether, when a state statute criminalizes only the causation or threat of bodily harm without a distinct element requiring the use or threatened use of physical force, that offense qualifies as a crime of violence within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. § 16(a) as the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the 7th, 8th and 9th Circuits have held, or whether 18 U.S.C. § 16(a) applies only if the statute also requires the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force as the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 1st, 2nd and 5th Circuits have held.
