Sentencing Remand Because Defendant Not Allowed Allocution

US v. Castillo, No. 12-2020 (N), 11/15/12 (Unpublished) - Sentence vacated and case remanded for resentencing where government concedes remand to be appropriate remedy for district court’s failure to afford defendant right of allocution. Parties can fully address other sentencing issues raised by defendant on remand, so no need to address them here, especially with poorly-developed record.
