UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-6667 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. PRISCILLA LYDIA TURNER, Defendant - Appellant. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, at Asheville. Martin K. Reidinger, District Judge. (1:16-cr-00133-MR-DLH-1) Submitted: October 23, 2018 Decided: October 26, 2018 Before NIEMEYER, KING, and WYNN, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Priscilla Lydia Turner, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Priscilla Lydia Turner appeals the district court’s order denying her motion to modify the restitution payments she is required to make through the Bureau of Prisons’ Inmate Financial Responsibility Program. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Turner’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Turner has forfeited appellate review of the court’s order. See Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 177 (4th Cir. 2014) (“The informal brief is an important document; under Fourth Circuit rules, our review is limited to issues preserved in that brief.”). Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s order. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
