US v. Wahlstrom, No. 08-3986

By FindLaw Staff on December 01, 2009 3:06 PM

Defendant's drug and firearm possession sentence is affirmed where: 1) the district court carefully reviewed the testimony of each witness and provided specific reasons for its belief of some and disbelief of others; 2) the Sentencing Guidelines' obstruction of justice enhancement applied where a defendant targeted a prosecutor or his family; and 3) the district court's refusal to hear from witnesses who attended the sentencing hearing to testify on defendant's behalf did not show that the court gave inadequate consideration to the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors.
