US v. Novales, No. 07-3663

By FindLaw Staff on December 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court's imposition of 100 months' imprisonment on a defendant convicted, after a guilty plea, of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine is reversed and remanded as the district court committed a clear procedural error in failing to calculate defendant's appropriate Guidelines range, and as such the sentencing hearing was procedurally unreasonable under Gall.
