This sentencing appeal primarily concerns the reasonableness of a downward departure from a Sentencing Guidelines calculation and the reasonableness of the resulting sentence. The Government appeals from the November 17, 2005, judgment by the District Court for the District of Connecticut (Alfred v. Covello, District Judge) resentencing the Defendant, John Canova, after a remand from this Court, to one years probation and a $1,000 fine. The Government contends that the District Courts 15-level downward departure was unreasonable and that we should remand with instructions to impose a sentence of not less than 12 months. We agree that a remand for resentencing is required, but decline to specify a minimum sentence.
