US v. Hargrove, 11-4818

In defendant's conviction for his involvement in a dogfighting activity, in violation of the Animal Welfare Act, 7 U.S.C. section 2156, district court's imposition of a 60-month sentence is affirmed where: 1) the court made abundantly clear that even if defendant's sentencing guideline rage was 0-6 months, it believed a 60-month sentence was necessary to accomplish the objectives of sentencing; and 2) it was not unreasonable for the court to exercise its discretion in imposing the sentence that it did.
