United States v. Pugh, 515 F.3d 1179, 1189 (11th Cir. 2008) (quoting Rita v. United
States, 551 U.S. 338, 351 (2007)).
In reviewing sentences for reasonableness, we typically perform two steps. Id.
First, we “‘ensure that the district court committed no significant procedural error,
such as failing to calculate (or improperly calculating) the Guidelines range, treating
the Guidelines as mandatory, failing to consider the § 3553(a) factors, selecting a
sentence based on clearly erroneous facts, or failing to adequately explain the chosen
sentence -- including an explanation for any deviation from the Guidelines range.’”
Id. (quoting Gall v. United States, 552 U.S. 38, 51 (2007)).
If we conclude that the district court did not procedurally err, we must consider
the “‘substantive reasonableness of the sentence imposed under an
abuse-of-discretion standard,’” based on the “‘totality of the circumstances.’” Id.
(quoting Gall, 552 U.S. at 51). This review is “deferential,” requiring us to determine
“whether the sentence imposed by the district court fails to achieve the purposes of
sentencing as stated in section 3553(a).” United States v. Talley, 431 F.3d 784, 788
(11th Cir. 2005). “[W]e will not second guess the weight (or lack thereof) that the
[district court] accorded to a given factor ... as long as the sentence ultimately
imposed is reasonable in light of all the circumstances presented.” United States v.
