US v. Heckel, No. 07-3514
Conviction and sentence for wire fraud is affirmed where: 1) application of the mass-marketing sentencing enhancement was appropriate, as defendant used the Internet to conduct large-scale advertising to attract bidders to his fraudulent online auctions; 2) the district court did not err in adding criminal-history points to defendant's total based on his previous state conviction; and 3) defendant's sentence is reasonable.
