US v. Cirilo-Munoz, No. 08-1830

District court did not err or abuse its discretion in imposing the statutory mandatory minimum sentence, and defendant's request that the statute be declared unconstitutional as applied to him is rejected, as he has not supplied any supporting argument and did not present a constitutionally based argument in the district court.
