United States District Court, N.D. Iowa, Cedar Rapids Division
June 29, 2015
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
GEORGE CORBETT, Defendant.
ORDER REGARDING MOTION FOR SENTENCE REDUCTION PURSUANT TO 18 U.S.C. § 3582(C)(2)
LINDA R. READE CHIEF JUDGE
Regarding a reduction in sentence pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), the court held a hearing on June 23, 2015. Consistent with the findings that the court made during the hearing concerning Amendment 782 (subject to subsection (e)(1)), the court concludes that a reduction under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) and USSG §1B1.10 is not justified. After thoroughly reviewing the defendant’s file, the provisions and commentary of USSG §1B1.10, the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), the nature and seriousness of the danger to any person or community that may be posed by a reduction in the defendant’s term of imprisonment and the defendant’s post-sentencing conduct, the court declined to exercise its discretion under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) and USSG §1B1.10. Accordingly, the defendant’s motion to reduce sentence (docket no. 193) is denied. The clerk’s office is directed to send a copy of this order to the defendant and provide a copy of this order to appointed counsel, the office of the Federal Public Defender, the office of the United States Attorney and the office of United States Probation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
