Lots of interesting reports from the sentencing front lines
The newspapers are filled with a number of interesting reports of recent federal sentencings. Here are links to intriguing stories of sentences apparently imposed within the guidelines from Montana involving embezzlement and from Texas involving bomb-making and involving child pornography. Also in the papers are intriguing stories of sentences apparently imposed below the guidelines from Montana involving securities fraud and from Maine involving bank robbery (in a case with an elaborate legal history as detailed here).
Relatedly, this article details that, following the First Circuit's Booker remand for former Providence Mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci (which still seems a bit hinky to me as explained here), Cianci's lawyers are requesting a 29-month reduction in Buddy's sentence. If Cianci gets a big break upon resentencing, I will again be wondering, as I did here, whether white-collar offenders as a class are doing particularly well in the post-Booker world.

Why do non predatory sexual offenders who have paid their time and kept their nose clean in every way get treated like vicious animals by the court system here in Florida. We can live anywhere we want but we can't have my son living with us? What is up?
