US v. Llamas, 09-4045

In a conviction of defendant for multiple offenses arising from his role in a fraudulent sweepstakes scheme, as well as a sentence to 132 months' imprisonment and restitution order exceeding $4.2 million, are affirmed in part, vacated in part, and remanded where: 1) district court's application of the vulnerable victim adjustment was not procedurally unreasonable; 2) district court did not clearly err in relying on a certain evidence to find that defendant was a supervisor of the center's employees; and 3) district court abused its discretion with respect to the restitution order as it was not limited to losses attributable to the center.
