By FindLaw Staff on August 14, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where defendant's appeal of the upward departure from his sentencing guidelines range fell within the scope of his valid appeal waiver, and defendant has not shown that the sentence ultimately imposed was illegal or constituted a miscarriage of justice under existing applicable precedent, and thus the appeal must be dismissed.
