US v. Tristan-Madrigal, 09-1003

In a conviction of defendant for unauthorized entry from Mexico for the fourth time, district court's imposition of a thirty-six month, above Guidelines sentence, is affirmed, as the sentence is not substantively unreasonable where: 1) consideration of past drunk-driving convictions and unauthorized reentries was proper; and 2) district court did not abuse its discretion by relying on defendant's need for rehabilitation.
