United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Juan T. Ruiz, Defendant-appellant, 39 F.3d 1190 (9th Cir. 1994)Annotate this Case
Before: BROWNING, FARRIS and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.
Juan T. Ruiz appeals his sentence under the Sentencing Guidelines imposed following his conviction for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (1). He contends that the district court improperly denied his request for a downward departure on account of his extraordinary family circumstances, employment history and age. We lack jurisdiction to review the district court's discretionary refusal to depart downward. See United States v. Reed, 914 F.2d 1288, 1290 (9th Cir. 1990).
