Original Article

Diigo Post Excerpt:
_____ pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 1380 months' imprisonment for multiple child pornography offenses. During his sentencing hearing, he offered testimony in mitigation from psychiatrist Dr. Louis Cady. The district court discussed some of Cady's findings in explaining the sentence imposed, but neglected to mention other findings, most notably Dr. Cady's contentions that _____'s history of sexual and psychological abuse as a child contributed to his decision to commit his offenses and that _____ was unlikely to reoffend. _____ claims that the district court's alleged failures to address adequately these arguments constitute procedural error. We disagree.
