United States v. Neuenfeldt

United States District Court, E.D. Wisconsin

July 16, 2018

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Plaintiff,
v.
GREGORY M. NEUENFELDT Defendant.

          STATEMENT OF REASON MEMORANDUM

          LYNN ADELMAN LYNN ADELMAN DISTRICT JUDGE

         Defendant Gregory Neuenfeldt pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm following a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(9), and I set the case for sentencing. In imposing sentence, the district court must first correctly calculate the advisory sentence guideline range. The court must then consider the arguments of the parties and the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), making an individualized assessment based on the facts presented.

(A) to reflect the seriousness of the offense, to promote respect for the law, and to provide just punishment for the offense;

(C) to protect the public from further crimes of the defendant; and
(D) to provide the defendant with needed educational or vocational training, medical care, or other correctional ...
