Issue: Whether a court must apply the modified categorical approach to determine whether a verdict of conviction under 18 U.S.C. § 924(c) necessarily rests on a valid predicate offense, as the Supreme Court directed in United States v. Davis, Mathis v. United States and Shepard v. United States or whether it may affirm such a Section 924(c) conviction if it is merely possible that the jury relied on a valid predicate offense.
