Case: 16-11615 Date Filed: 11/10/2016 Page: 1 of 2 [DO NOT PUBLISH] IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE ELEVENTH CIRCUIT ________________________ No. 16-11615 Non-Argument Calendar ________________________ D.C. Docket No. 1:08-cr-21031-PCH-1 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, versus COREY LEMAR WRIGHT, Defendant-Appellant. ________________________ Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida ________________________ (November 10, 2016) Before HULL, WILSON and WILLIAM PRYOR, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: Case: 16-11615 Date Filed: 11/10/2016 Page: 2 of 2 Corey Lemar Wright appeals pro se the denial of his third motion to reduce his sentence. 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). Wright moved for a reduction based on Amendment 782 of the Sentencing Guidelines. We affirm. The district court did not err by denying Wright’s motion. Wright pleaded guilty to possessing with intent to distribute cocaine base, see 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), (a)(2), and the district court sentenced him to five years of imprisonment. Because Wright’s sentence was based on the statutory mandatory minimum, see United States Sentencing Guidelines Manual § 5G1.1(b), not on the drug quantity tables, see id. § 2D1.1, he was ineligible for a reduction of his sentence under Amendment 782, see id. § 1B1.10 cmt n.1(A). The district court lacked authority to reduce Wright’s sentence. We AFFIRM the denial of Wright’s motion to reduce. 2
