NONPRECEDENTIAL DISPOSITION To be cited only in accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 32.1 United States Court of Appeals For the Seventh Circuit Chicago, Illinois 60604 Submitted January 18, 2007 Decided March 9, 2007 Before Hon. WILLIAM J. BAUER, Circuit Judge Hon. KENNETH F. RIPPLE, Circuit Judge Hon. DIANE P. WOOD, Circuit Judge No. 06-2791 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. PAUL E. PALMER, Defendant-Appellant. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois. No. 01 CR 20041 Michael P. McCuskey, Chief Judge. ORDER The defendant in this case was convicted of one count of conspiracy and six counts of aiding and assisting in the filing of false income tax returns. On appeal, this court affirmed the convictions but acting on the agreement of the government, the court remanded the matter to the trial court for re-sentencing post-Booker. (United States v. Booker, 543 U.S. 220 (2005.)) The defendant now appeals the new sentence. The defendant claimed that the reimposition of the sentence itself was vindictive. The record fails to demonstrate this. The record further shows that the district court's restitution order credited the defendant appropriately for past and future payments of third parties and was not in error. No. 06-2791 Page 2 The claim of ex post facto clause violation borders on the frivolous. The defendant's argument that his rights to a speedy trial were violated was laid to the rest in the first appeal The sentence and judgment of the district court is summarily affirmed.
