Fifth Circuit - Restitution

United States v. Kim , 988 F.3d 803 (5th Cir. 2021). The restitution order in a copyright infringement case exceeded the statutory maximum because it was based on a speculative loss amount contained in the Presentence Report and exceeded the amount of the victim's actual loss. A defendant’s appeal waiver does not bar an appeal of a sentence exceeding the statutory maximum.
