US v. Gibbs, No. 08-2186

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on August 25, 2009 5:11 PM

Defendant's sentence of ten years' supervised release is vacated as the district court never acknowledged that the advisory range under the sentencing Guidelines was five years.  District court's order conditioning defendant's supervised release on repaying the money used by the government to buy the drugs is premature and the court appropriately deferred any such consideration until defendant's release from prison.
