Woodard v. United States
Petition for certiorari denied on November 2, 2020
Issue: Whether the Supreme Court should revisit and recede from its decision in Deal
v. United States, which permits the “stacking” of
mandatory minimum sentences for first-time offenders under 18 U.S.C.
§ 924(c)(1)(C) for offenses contained within a single indictment, when
subsequent congressional amendments have superseded Deal and
clarified that the true intent of the statute is to punish recidivism.
