United States v Burns

Burns appealed the restitution order in his sentence. The panel affirmed. It held there was no clear error in the factual finding that Burns stole five pieces of mail as he admitted stealing letters and boxes form the postal facility, the items were mailed to the facility and Burns offered only speculation as to how the items disappeared. It also held that the jury did not have to find the facts for restitution as there is no maximum amount that can be awarded and thus no factual triggers that need to be found.
