US v. Deloney, No. 07-3451

By FindLaw Staff on August 25, 2009 4:59 PM

Defendant's sentence for drug possession with intent to deliver is affirmed where: 1) a sentence that falls within the properly calculated Guidelines is presumed reasonable and the district court analyzed the factors and explained the reasons for defendant's sentence; and 2) defendant's argument that the district court should have considered the soon to be amended Guidelines in deciding what sentence to impose is frivolous as a district court is to apply the Guidelines in effect at the time of sentencing.
