United States v. Rogers

The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's application of a nine-level sentencing enhancement for recklessly endangering the safety of an aircraft under USSG 2A5.2(a)(2). In this case, defendant pleaded guilty to one count of aiming a laser at an aircraft when he repeatedly pointed a laser at a police helicopter, temporarily blinding the pilot. The court held that, although it was a close question, the district court did not clearly err in finding that defendant was aware of the danger of pointing his laser at an aircraft.
