US v. Martin, No. 08-3881

Defendant's drug manufacturing sentence is affirmed where: 1) the district court's conclusion that the transaction at issue did not end until the crack was delivered was well supported by the evidence; 2) defendant's extensive dealing with controlled substances and previous crimes were adequate grounds for not granting a downward departure based on the powder/crack disparity; and 3) the district court's failure to find sentencing entrapment was not clearly erroneous.
