US v. Vrdolyak, No. 09-1891

By FindLaw Staff on January 29, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and sentence to five years probation, with a community-service obligation but no confinement and a $50,000 fine, is reversed and remanded as, while a judge can give a below-guidelines sentence, the sentence cannot stand if it is based on a legal, factual, or analytic error that is not harmless as it is in this case.
