Ind. Decisions - One Indiana decision today from 7th Circuit

In U.S. v. Collins (ND Ind., Van Bokkelen), a 14-page opinion, Judge Herndon, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, sitting by designation, writes:

The defendant, Garjon Collins, seeks review by this Court of his sentence, asserting that the district judge’s sentence of 108 months of incarceration was unreasonable. The defendant seeks a reduction in sentence of 24 months. We affirm. * * *

The district judge properly considered the § 3553(a) sentencing factors and imposed an appropriate, reasonable sentence in this case. We therefore AFFIRM the sentence the district court imposed upon defendant Collins.
