Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides Indiana sentencing appeal

In affirming USA v. Taryll Miller (SD Ind., John Daniel Tinder, Judge), a 10-page opinion, Judge Easterbrook writes on p. 8:

We held in United States v. Gipson, 425 F.3d 335 (7th Cir. 2005), that defendants are not entitled to a deviation from the statutory (100-to-1) ratio. Now we add, in agreement with Eura and Pho, that district judges must continue to carry out the legislative choice, even though there may be powerful reasons for change.
