Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 822 F.2d 60 (6th Cir. 1987) July 6, 1987

Before KEITH and NORRIS, Circuit Judges, and PECK, Senior Circuit Judge.


Defendant Sam Yono appeals his jury conviction of possession of stolen mail in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1708. Appellant was sentenced to two years in the custody of the Attorney General, with the execution of sentence being suspended except for the first six months. Defendant was ordered to make restitution in the amount of $4,050.00, fined $1,500.00 and assessed $50.00 as a special assessment. The issue on appeal is whether the trial court abused its discretion by failing to conduct an evidentiary hearing or to make findings of fact to resolve the dispute concerning the amount of loss to the victim and the parole guidelines. After careful review of the record, we find no abuse of discretion on the part of the district court in sentencing appellant.

Accordingly, we AFFIRM the conviction of the district court.
