U.S. v. Melchor-Meceno, No. 09-10012 (9-1-10)(N. Smith with Schroeder and Moody, D.J.). This is another case dealing with whether a prior Colorado conviction for "menacing" is a "crime of violence" for enhancement purposes under 2L1.2. The 9th holds that Colorado's felony menacing statute, C.R.S. 18-3-206, is a categorical crime of violence. The Colorado felony statute requires a threat of imminent serious bodily injury and it requires a general intent to do so.
