US v. Thornhill, 13-2876

The district court's revocation of defendant's supervised release on each of three prior convictions, and sentence of twelve months for each of the three convictions, is affirmed, where: 1) under 18 U.S.C. section 3583(g), which mandates the revocation of supervised release and the imposition of a term of imprisonment under certain enumerated circumstances, a district court's exercise of discretion in determining the length of the defendant's term of imprisonment is guided by the sentencing factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a); 2) the record demonstrates that the district court meaningfully considered the relevant section 3553(a) factors; and 3) the district court's order revoking defendant's terms of supervised release and imposing three separate penalties was not procedurally or substantively unreasonable.
