‘Unreasonable’ Sentence

CINCINNATI — The Sixth Circuit remanded, for the second time, a case in which a district court judge sentenced a man who downloaded nearly 1,000 images of child pornography to 12 months’ home confinement, even though the sentencing guidelines called for a sentence of 97 to 120 months in prison. 

The circuit, which called the original sentence “substantively unreasonable,” ordered the case reassigned to another district court judge.
