US v. Vaughn, 09-3789

In a prosecution of an inmate for committing aggravated assault on a federal officer, district court's imposition of a 180-month sentence is affirmed as the district court's explanations, that its decision rested on the need to deter defendant and others from such senseless attacks, the effort by defendant to prolong the attack, and the gruesome quality of the weapon, in imposing the above-guideline sentence are all reasonable.
