US v. Truong, No. 08-10446

Defendant's sentence for possessing unauthorized access devices is affirmed where: 1) nothing in either the plain language of 18 U.S.C. section 1029 or the case law required that an "access device" contain information identifying a particular person as its owner; and 2) the district court sufficiently explained that the Guidelines did not account for defendant's particular type of recidivism.
