Judge Roberts' DC Circuit sentencing opinions

For anyone eager to review the sentencing work of Judge John Roberts during his tenure on the DC Circuit, here for your reading pleasure are some (all?) of the sentencing decisions authored by Judge Roberts (roughly in reverse chronological order with links):

  • US v. Smith, No. 03-3087 (DC Cir. July 20, 2004) (available here), additional per curiam opinion denying petition for rehearing on Booker grounds (DC Cir. Mar. 18, 2005)(available here)
  • US v. Mellen, No. 03-3100 (DC Cir. Dec. 21, 2004)(available here)
  • US v. West, No. 03-3149 (DC Cir. Dec. 10, 2004) (available here)
  • US v. Tucker, No. 03-3139 (DC Cir. Oct. 26, 2004) (available here)
  • US v. Stanfield, No. 03-3104 (DC Cir. March 19, 2004) (available here)
  • US v. Bolla, No. 03-3104 (DC Cir. Oct. 24, 2003) (available here)

The only clear conclusions I draw from a very quick scan of these opinions is that, even though he has served a relatively short time on a circuit with a relatively small criminal docket, Judge Roberts still has had occasion to experience in a few cases the intricate joys of federal guideline sentencing and the Apprendi-Blakely-Booker line of decisions.
