Ind. Decisions - "Notable sentencing reversal by Seventh Circuit in mortgage fraud sentencing"

That is the heading to this Sentencing Law blog entry yesterday highlighting a 7th Circuit ruling in a case appealed from the ND Ill, E Div. The ruling, written by Judge Hamilton, in US v. Robertson (Nos. 11-1651 & 11-1618) includes:

We reject these arguments. But we agree with the Robertsons’ final argument, that the sentencing judge failed to consider adequately their unusually strong evidence of self-motivated rehabilitation. For this reason, we vacate their sentences and remand for resentencing.
