ABSTRACT
The article presents the perspective of a circuit judge of a U.S. court of appeals on federal sentencing guidelines after the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions in "Rita v. United States" and "Booker v. United States." It also looks at the three categories of district-court sentences, which have emerged since "Booker," and examines the different sets of concerns of each category regarding the conflict between consistency and individualized sentencing.
