The Seventh Circuit stated: "On remand he will face a statutory minimum of 10 years, 21 U.S.C. § 841(b)(1)(B) (2006 & Supp. IV 2011), and still will be subject to a guidelines range of 360 months to life as a career offender, see U.S.S.G. § 4B1.1(b)(1)." (Doc. 129, p.6).
In light of the resentencing, the Court DIRECTS the parties to brief the appropriate length of sentence pursuant to Dorsey on or before September 28, 2012. Further, the Court SETS this matter for resentencing on November 29, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. Defendant shall be present at this hearing. Thus, the Court DIRECTS the United States' Attorney's office to prepare the appropriate paperwork to assure the defendant's appearance in this Court for the resentencing.
