United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Juan Tarango, Defendant-appellant, 13 F.3d 407 (10th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 13 F.3d 407 (10th Cir. 1993) Nov. 23, 1993

Before McKAY, Chief Judge, SETH and BARRETT, Circuit Judges.


The parties have agreed that this case may be submitted for decision on the briefs. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(f); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.2. The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.

Juan Tarango, proceeding pro se, appeals the district court's denial of his motion to retroactively apply the amendment to U.S.S.G. 3E1.1 to his sentence, thereby denying him an additional one-level downward departure for acceptance of responsibility.

The amendment to 3E1.1 may not be applied retroactively. United States v. Avila, 997 F.2d 767 (10th Cir. 1993). We therefore affirm.



This order and judgment has no precedential value and shall not be cited, or used by any court within the Tenth Circuit, except for purposes of establishing the doctrines of the law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel. 10th Cir. R. 36.3
