United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. James Lee Mcadams, Defendant-appellant, 133 F.3d 930 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Before: SNEED, LEAVY and TROTT, Circuit Judges.
James Lee McAdams appeals pro se the district court's denial of his motion to change a condition of his release requiring him to abstain from alcohol. He contends that the United States Parole Commission lacked jurisdiction to impose this condition because the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 abolished the Parole Commission. We affirm.
The Parole Commission Phaseout Act of 1996, Pub. L. 104-232, 110 Stat. 3055 (Oct. 2, 1996) extended the Parole Commission's existence to November 1, 2002, to process the cases of individuals such as McAdams who committed offenses before the effective date of the Sentencing Reform Act.
