US v. Pagan Walker, 16-1166

Affirming the imposition of a 60 month sentence for the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon where the accused entered into a plea agreement and their offense level suggested a guideline range of 30 to 37 months because the court's failure to provide a written statement of their reasoning in imposing the sentence was not a procedural error and its rejection of mitigating factors and weight given to the need for deterrence were not substantive errors.
