Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit affirms Jared Fogle's above-guidelines sentence

In USA v. Jared S. Fogle (SD Ind., Pratt), a 9-page opinion, Judge Flaum writes:

In August 2015, Jared Fogle pled guilty to two counts of conviction for offenses involving the distribution and receipt of child pornography, as well as travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor. The district court imposed an above-guidelines sentence of 188 months in prison on each count, to be served concurrently. Fogle appeals his sentence, alleging that the district court committed procedural and substantive errors. Because the district court did not err in imposing an above-guidelines sen-tence, we affirm. * * *

In light of the district court’s sound exercise of discretion under the disturbing facts of this case, we uphold the above-guidelines sentence as substantively reasonable.
