US v. Peebles, 09-1986

By FindLaw Staff on November 04, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's sentence procedurally unreasonable

US v. Peebles, 09-1986, concerned a challenge to the district court's imposition of a ten-month sentence upon a defendant for violating the conditions of her supervised release.  In vacating the sentence and remanding for resentencing, the court held that defendant's sentence is procedurally unreasonable because the district court did not calculate the appropriate guideline range and because it is impossible to determine with certainty what sentencing range the district court relied on and whether the district court meant to impose a sentence within or above that range.
