In US v. Jarvis, No. 09-2199, the court of appeals affirmed defendant's sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of stolen firearms, holding that the district court adequately explained why partially consecutive sentences were reasonable, and it did not abuse its discretion in sentencing defendant as it did.

As the court wrote:  "Michael Jarvis appeals the 175-month sentence imposed upon him following his conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of stolen firearms, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 922 and 924. Jarvis argues that the district court abused its discretion when imposing an above guidelines sentence via partially consecutive sentences. We affirm."
