Two decisions of note from the First Circuit

The federal circuits have been relative quiet on the sentencing front this week (perhaps everyone is busy working on brackets).  But a little action comes today from the First Circuit with US v. Cruzado-Laureano, No. 05-1822 (1st Cir. Mar. 14, 2006) (available here) and US v. Narváez-Rosario, No. 05-1355 (1st Cir. Mar. 14, 2006) (available here).

Cruzado-Laureano deals with a guideline calculation iusse in a fraud case, and Appellate Law & Practice has  highlights here; Narváez-Rosario deals with application of the safety-valve in a drug case, and AL&P again provides the basics here.
