If you are not easily bored (or disgusted)...

by Eighth Circuit decisions affirming above-guideline sentences, be sure to check out the Circuit's work today in US v. Garnette, No. 06-1053 (8th Cir. Jan 10, 2007) (available here) and US v. D'Andrea,  No. 06-1115 (8th Cir. Jan 10, 2007) (available here). 

Notably, both Garnette and D'Andrea involve sentencing for child-porn related offenses sentencing.  In Garnette, the panel finds reasonable an upward variance adding nearly four years of extra imprisonment; in D'Andrea, the panel finds reasonable an upward departure adding almost seven years imprisonment based on uncharged conduct.

UPDATE:  The Fourth Circuit also today found an above-guideline sentence reasonable in US v. Hernandez-Villanueva, No. 06-4211 (4th Cir. Jan 10, 2007) (available here). 

I wonder how many defendants losing these days on reasonableness review are (1) seeking cert. and (2) likely to get a GVR after SCOTUS addresses reasonableness review in Claiborne and Rita.
