US v. Young, 08-2357

In the prosecution of an employee at a day spa where sexual massages were provided to spa customers, imposition of the minimum term of imprisonment called for by the Sentencing Guidelines on defendant convicted of conspiring to use the facilities of interstate commerce to facilitate prostitution is affirmed as the district court properly determined defendant's offense level and she has not shown which of the Guidelines factors, if any, was sufficiently meritorious to require explicit discussion by the court or to rebut the presumption of reasonableness attached to the within-Guidelines sentence imposed.
