Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals affirms "slight" downward deviation from sentencing guidelines of 180 months prison plus 6 years supervised for methamphetamine production 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(C). Citing Gall v. United States, No. 06-7949 and 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a)(1), (4)(A), the Eighth Circuit finds no abuse of discretion from the sentence outside the guidelines range as the trial court considered all appropriate factors while not considering inappropriate factors.063488U.pdf 12/28/2007 USA v.
