Sentence enhancements for abuse of position of trust and failure to report more than $10,000 in income from an illegal source are affirmed where there was no clear error in their imposition, and the overall reasonableness of the sentence is affirmed where the district court clearly understood and conformed to its post-Booker responsibilities.
