We considered this case in July of 2004 and we affirmed the convictions and the sentence. United States v. Lewis, 111 Fed.Appx. 876 (9th Cir.2004). The Supreme Court granted certiorari, and vacated the decision and remanded the case to us in light of United States v. Booker, ___ U.S. ___, 125 S.Ct. 738, 160 L.Ed.2d 621 (2005). Lewis v. United States, ___ U.S. ___, 125 S.Ct. 1404, 161 L.Ed.2d 175 (2005). Because Petitioner did not challenge his sentence on Sixth Amendment grounds in the district court, we grant a limited remand pursuant to United States v. Ameline, 409 F.3d 1073 (9th Cir.2005) (en banc). See United States v. Moreno-Hernandez, 419 F.3d 906, 915-16 (9th Cir.2005) (holding that "defendants are entitled to limited remands in all pending direct criminal appeals involving unpreserved Booker error, whether constitutional or nonconstitutional").
