United States v. Lightfoot, Jr., No. 11-11232 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed the the district court's reduction of his original sentence from 310 to 286 months under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 35(b) after he provided substantial assistance to the government. After determining that the court had jurisdiction of this appeal, the court concluded that the district court provided adequate reasons in ruling on the motion for reduction of defendant's sentence and that defendant failed to identify a single 18 U.S.C. 3553(a) factor that the district court should have, but did not, take into account in determining his sentence. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
