US v. Mendoza, No. 08-2403

By FindLaw Staff on August 12, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Sentence for cocaine conspiracy is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in applying a two-level enhancement for his aggravating role in the conspiracy under U.S.S.G. sec. 3B1.1(c); and 2) the court did not err in failing to articulate reasons for rejecting his arguments for mitigation under 18 U.S.C. sec. 3553(a) as the record shows that although the court did not explicitly discuss each of defendant's arguments for mitigation, it did consider them, and also gave meaningful consideration to the 18 U.S.C. sec. 3553(a) factors and adequately explained its reasons for imposing the sentence.
