United States v. Crawford
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
520 F.3d 1072 (2008)
A federal district court jury convicted Antonio Crawford (defendant) of two counts of distribution of heroin and crack cocaine in violation of federal law. After reviewing Crawford’s long period of selling drugs in his community, and his criminal history and associations, the district court sentenced Crawford to 210 months’ imprisonment. The United States Sentencing Guidelines range for the crime was 210 to 262 months’ imprisonment. Crawford appealed. The matter was deferred pending resolution of several cases, including Rita v. United States, 127 S.Ct. 2456 (2007). In Rita, the United States Supreme Court held that appellate courts may presume the reasonableness of sentences falling within the federal guidelines. The court of appeals reviewed Crawford’s sentence based on Rita.
