Kansas robbery is not a violent felony

We have blogged about Kansas robbery before (here and here), but it's been a while, and the Tenth Circuit did not publish an authoritative opinion on the issue until this week.

It's now official: Neither Kansas robbery nor Kansas aggravated robbery are violent felonies. They cannot serve as predicate offenses for ACCA purposes (or, for similar reasons, for career-offender or other like purposes).

So says the Tenth Circuit in United States v. Bong, No. 16-3323, 2019 WL 336512 (Jan. 28, 2019).
