Taylored to the crime?

Another collateral consequences note, from United States v. Taylor, No. 10-3132 (7th Cir. July 7, 2011).

Taylor was serving in the Navy when he was charged with forcible sodomy in violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), 10 U.S.C. § 925. He pleaded guilty, and a general court-martial sentenced him to seven months in prison.

Kenneth Lee Taylor entered an open plea of guilty, without the benefit of a plea agreement, for failing to register as a sex offender in violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), 18 U.S.C. § 2250. The district court judge sentenced Taylor to eighteen months in prison, twenty years of supervised released, and a $100 special assessment fee. We affirm.

The district court judge classified Taylor as a Tier III sex offender and calculated the United States Sentencing Guideline range to be 24 to 30 months in prison and 5 years to life of supervised release.
