United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

United States of America Plaintiff - Appellee v. Darnell Michael Norton, also known as Dino Defendant - Appellant

No. 15-3927

    Decided: October 07, 2016

Before SMITH, BENTON, and SHEPHERD, Circuit Judges.

Darnell Michael Norton appeals after the district court 1 denied his motion for a sentence reduction under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). Having jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, this court affirms.

The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying a sentence reduction, as it adequately examined the sentencing factors and public safety concerns, and explained its reasoning. See United States v. Long, 757 F.3d 762, 763 (8th Cir. 2014) (abuse-of-discretion review of discretionary decision whether to grant authorized § 3582(c)(2) modification); see also United States v. Curry, 584 F.3d 1102, 1103-05 (8th Cir. 2009) (district court did not abuse its discretion in declining to reduce defendant's sentence under § 3582(c)(2) due to defendant's criminal history).

The judgment is affirmed and counsel's motion to withdraw is granted.
