Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's crack cocaine distribution sentence is affirmed where 1) even though the U.S.S.G. section 1B1.10 policy statement provided that the district court may grant a comparable sentence reduction, it was not compelled to do so; and 2) the fact that the district court did not mention the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors when it summarily reduced defendant's sentence did not mean that it did not consider them.
