Daniel Wenner authored an article titled, "3rd Circ. Curtails Review For Error At Sentencing," which was published on Law360 on September 2. He discusses the Third Circuit court's decision in United States v. Flores-Mejia, which made appealing a sentence based on procedural error tougher. The ruling imposed a new requirement on defendants to challenge all possible procedural errors at sentencing hearing or be subject to the onerous strictures of plain-error review on appeal.
