37-Month Sentence for Bank Robbery Held to Be Substantively Reasonable

U.S. v. Borghee, 2013 WL 3326343 (7/1/13) (Okl.) (unpub'd) - In the course of upholding as substantively reasonable a 37-month sentence for bank robbery, the 10th finds "compelling" the defendant's mitigation argument that the defendant's growing depression and panic attacks, fueled by his financial situation, combined with his youth and immaturity, led him to commit the robbery.
