United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

United States of America, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. Rodney Tracy, Defendant - Appellant.

No. 16-3785

    Decided: January 26, 2017

Before SMITH, ARNOLD, and COLLOTON, Circuit Judges.

While Rodney Tracy was serving a three-year term of federal supervised release, the district court 1 revoked supervised release and sentenced him to serve six months in prison and two additional years of supervised release. Tracy appeals, challenging both the decision to revoke supervised release and the resulting revocation sentence. We affirm.

Upon careful review of the record, we conclude that the district court did not clearly err in finding that Tracy violated multiple conditions of his supervised release. See United States v. Miller, 557 F.3d 910, 914 (8th Cir. 2009) (standard of review). Accordingly, the court was entitled to revoke supervised release, see 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(3), and did not abuse its discretion in doing so, see Miller, 557 F.3d at 914. We conclude, further, that the district court's revocation sentence--which the court imposed after carefully articulating relevant considerations under 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), and which fell within the advisory Sentencing Guidelines revocation range--was not unreasonable. See United States v. Merrival, 521 F.3d 889, 890 (8th Cir. 2008) (standard of review).

Accordingly, we affirm the judgment, and we grant counsel's motion to withdraw.
