By FindLaw Staff on January 06, 2010 8:09 AM

District court's imposition of 46-months' imprisonment and three years of supervised release on a defendant convicted of illegally reentering the United States subsequent to a conviction for the commission of an aggravated felony is affirmed where: 1) it is apparent that the district court was aware of the discretionary nature of the Guidelines and its authority to impose a sentence outside of the prescribed range, but it had no obligation to exercise that discretion in favor of the defendant; and 2) defendant's sentence is substantively reasonable.
