US v. Tonks, No. 08-3821

By FindLaw Staff on July 29, 2009 3:35 PM

Sentence for wire fraud is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in denying defendant's request for an acceptance-of-responsibility reduction as his comments showed he expressly and unequivocally denied his factual guilt; and 2) the court followed proper procedure and applied the relevant factors in determining whether the sentence in this case should be consecutive to two other sentences, and its decision to impose a consecutive sentence was reasonable.
