Case: 16-50131 Document: 00513808319 Page: 1 Date Filed: 12/21/2016 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT No. 16-50131 Summary Calendar United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit FILED December 21, 2016 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee v. CHARLES MARRION HARDING, Defendant-Appellant Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas USDC No. 2:10-CR-1376-1 Before JOLLY, SMITH, and GRAVES, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Charles Marrion Harding, federal prisoner # 06729-078, appeals the district court’s denial of his 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) motion for a sentencing reduction based on Amendment 782 to the Sentencing Guidelines. On September 23, 2016, before this case was decided, Harding was released from federal custody. “Where a defendant has begun serving a term of supervised release, the appeal of the denial of his § 3582(c)(2) motion is moot.” United Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 16-50131 Document: 00513808319 Page: 2 Date Filed: 12/21/2016 No. 16-50131 States v. Booker, 645 F.3d 328, 328 (5th Cir. 2011). Harding’s appellate arguments pertain only to the denial of relief under § 3582(c)(2) as related to the term of his imprisonment, and he makes no challenge to his term of supervised release. Accordingly, the appeal is DISMISSED AS MOOT. 2
