US v. Vanderwerfhorst, No. 07-30336

Defendant's child pornography sentence is affirmed where: 1) defendant's enhanced sentence was a clear example of a "variance" from, and not a "departure" within, the Sentencing Guidelines scheme; and 2) the district court properly considered a wide variety of information at sentencing that could not otherwise be considered at trial.
