And the Booker beat goes on the in circuits
Though I am (sort of) taking today off, the circuit courts are at work and they continue to reject defendants' claims that certain sentences are unreasonable after Booker. Here are two examples:
From the Sixth Circuit, US v. Hernandez-Fierros, No. 05-2206 (6th Cir. July 3, 2006) (available here), rejects a defendant's claim that the district court's failure to vary from the guidelines based on fast-track disparity made his sentence unreasonable.
From the Eighth Circuit, US v. Chase, No. 05-2070 (8th Cir. July 3, 2006) (available here), rejects a defendant's claim that the district court's decision to impose and above-Guideline sentence made his sentence unreasonable.
