US v. Brown, No. 09-3731

By FindLaw Staff on December 22, 2010 9:58 PM

In US v. Brown, No. 09-3731, the court affirmed defendant's conviction and sentence for wire fraud, causing interstate travel in execution of a scheme to defraud, engaging in monetary transactions in criminally derived property, and conspiracy to commit money laundering, where 1) the evidence of intent to defraud was more than sufficient to convict Brown of each count of conviction; 2) district courts were not required to mechanically recite the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors when it was clear the factors were properly considered; and 3) defendant's sentence was within his properly determined advisory guidelines range of 168 to 210 months in prison and was therefore presumptively reasonable.

As the court wrote:  "A jury convicted Daryl Miles Brown of seven counts of wire fraud, two counts of causing interstate travel in execution of a scheme to defraud, three counts of engaging in monetary transactions in criminally derived property, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. 18 U.S.C. §§ 1343, 1349, 1956(h), 1957, & 2314."
