Straying. A sentence which strayed from the terms of a plea agreement warranted setting a hearing before the District Court on the issue of sentencing. The summary order issued in United States v. Leonardo can be found here. The defendant in this case was a disgraced ex-lawyer, Anthony Leonardo Jr., who had been convicted for conspiracies to commit murder, traffic cocaine and launder money. Mr. Leonardo had been a prominent defense attorney. An article on this case can be found here.
