Dispatches from federal sentencing courts

Friday is sentencing day in many federal courtrooms, which means Saturday morning brings interesting reports of federal sentencings in the papers.  Here are a few that caught my eye this morning:

  • This article from Texas reports on a within-guideline sentence for a former police commissioner convicted of fraud.

  • This article from North Carolina reports on a 10-year sentence given to a man who sold computers over the Internet but failed to deliver.

  • And this commentary from Tennessee discusses last week's sentencing of a former football booster who bribed a high school coach to send a promising player to Alabama.  As detailed in this article, the booster on Monday received a below-guideline sentence of six months' imprisonment.
