The 4th Walks Away from the 6th

A reader has forwarded the information that the 4th Circuit has upheld the guidelines in their entirety, within hours of hearing argument.

I wait to see how the judges justify this conclusion (and wish I could say I am shocked). Apparently there are also dissents.

The appellate court has also "recommended" that trial courts issue dual sentences.

More information as I get it . . .

[addendum] Sentencing Law & Policy has the actual order here.
