Judge Adelman provides more post-Booker wisdom

Sentencing Hall of Famer Judge Lynn Adelman has added to his impressive body of post-Booker work through two recent opinions:  in one case [UPDATE: case name and link removed for privacy reasons], Judge Adelman justifies a non-guideline sentence in a child porn case; in US v. Peralta-Espinoza, No. 04-CR-282 (E.D. Wis. Feb. 3, 2006) (available for download below), Judge Adelman discusses the meaning of the term "aggravated felony" under USSG ยง 2L1.2 (and also explores in a footnote the Seventh Circuit's conclusion that departures are now obsolete).  As always, Judge Adelman's post-Booker work merits a full and close read.
