United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Kenneth Lee Beaty, Defendant-appellant, 8 F.3d 30 (9th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 8 F.3d 30 (9th Cir. 1993) Submitted Oct. 6, 1993. *Decided Oct. 20, 1993

Before: BEEZER, KOZINSKI and KLEINFELD, Circuit Judges.


Kenneth Lee Beaty appeals pro se the district court's denial of his 18 U.S.C. § 3572(c) motion for modification of an imposed term of imprisonment because of a favorable post-sentencing amendment to the United States Sentencing Guidelines. Beaty argues the district court erred by refusing to apply retroactively a November 1, 1992 amendment to U.S.S.G. § 3E1.1 which provided for an additional one-level reduction in a defendant's offense level for particularly timely or complete acceptance of responsibility provided certain conditions were met. Beaty's argument on appeal is foreclosed by our recent decision in United States v. Aldana-Ortiz, No. 91-50664, slip op. 10503, 10506 (9th Cir. Sept. 23, 1993) (per curiam), which held that the November 1, 1992 amendment to section 3E1.1 was not retroactively applicable.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
