Review of Martha's Sentence
Martha Stewart's sentence was sent back to the lower court for review. This is separate from the appeal of her case, with several appellate issues that are still to be ruled on by a panel in the Second Circuit. The fact that the sentence was sent back for review is not unique to her case, as many sentences were returned to trial courts for review in light of the Booker decision. See more here.
