US v. Anderson, 08-2925

District court's sentence and conviction of defendant for multiple crimes related to a fraudulent telemarketing scheme is affirmed where: 1) the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to support the jury's verdict that defendant acted with knowledge of a telemarketing company's fraudulent activity and with the specific intent to defraud telemarketing company's victims; 2) district court did not clearly err in applying the manager-or-supervisor enhancement as supported by evidence of defendant's involvement and control over the scheme; and 3) defendant failed to overcome the presumption that his below-guidelines sentence is reasonable.
