US v. Douglas, No. 09-10818

Defendant's drug distribution sentence is affirmed in part where defendant's original sentence was within the then-applicable guidelines range, and thus the district court was not authorized to impose a new sentence below the amended Guidelines range; but vacated in part where the record did not reflect that the district court considered the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors in deciding to reduce defendant's sentence.
