US v. Araujo, 09-1479

By FindLaw Staff on September 23, 2010 3:15 PM

US v. Araujo, 09-1479, concerned a challenge to the district court's imposition of a minimum recommended term of 235 months, in a prosecution of defendant for trafficking 30 or more kilograms of heroin.  In affirming, the court held that the district court did not clearly err in finding defendant responsible for the distribution of 30 or more kilograms of heroin and setting his based offense level at 38, and as such, the sentence the court imposed was within the advisory range corresponding to that offense level and therefore presumptively reasonable.
