US v. Statham, No. 08-2676

By FindLaw Staff on September 10, 2009 4:19 PM

Sentence of defendant for conspiracy to buy, sell and transport firearm from Mississippi to streets of Chicago is affirmed as the district court did not clearly err, based on factual findings, in increasing the offense level in calculating the Guidelines range to the statutory maximum. District court did not abuse its discretion by ordering defendant to serve two consecutive sentences and imposition of a sentence that was different from that received by co-defendants was not unreasonable.
