US v. Lee, 17-1490

Affirmed. In this criminal sentencing-action the appellate court affirmed the judgment of the district court. Defendant appealed his conviction for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute heroin in violation of 21 USC section 841 and 846, but only challenged his sentence as procedurally unreasonable. The district court imposed a 218-month sentence based on witness statements as to the quantity of heroin defendant was selling. Defendant maintained the quantity was greatly exaggerated and he should have received a more lenient sentence. The appellate court found no error in the district court relying on witness statements.
