United States v. Dugan, No. 10 Cr. 06-1 (RWS), 2010 WL 4118374 (S.D.N.Y. Oct. 12, 2010)
Dugan was convicted of having obstructed the entryway to a medical clinic in Manhattan. Because the offense was a class B misdemeanor, the Guidelines did not apply. Rather, the court was required to consider the remainder of the 3553(a) factors. And, in doing so, the court concluded that a four month prison term was appropriate for purposes of specific and general deterrence.
