US v. Brown, 09-3731

Defendant's conviction and sentence for wire fraud, causing interstate travel in execution of a scheme to defraud, engaging in monetary transactions in criminally derived property, and conspiracy to commit money laundering are affirmed where: 1) the evidence of intent to defraud was more than sufficient to convict Brown of each count of conviction; 2) district courts were not required to mechanically recite the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors when it was clear the factors were properly considered; and 3) defendant's sentence was within his properly determined advisory guidelines range of 168 to 210 months in prison and was therefore presumptively reasonable.
