Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's sentence for filing false tax returns is vacated where the district court failed to adequately explain the grounds for the sentence because: 1) the record was not clear that defendant's incarceration would harm his father's business; 2) the district court understated the severity of the offense; and 3) the district court improperly relied on prompt satisfaction of a substantial monetary sanction to impose a non-custodial sentence.
