UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. John ROPER, Defendant - Appellant.
Decided: August 23, 2019
Before FLOYD and RUSHING, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge.
John Roper, Appellant Pro Se. John David Rowell, Kathleen Michelle Stoughton, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Columbia, South Carolina, for Appellee.
John Roper appeals the district court's order denying his motion for a sentence reduction pursuant to section 404 of the First Step Act of 2018, Pub. L. No. 115-391, § 404, 132 Stat. 5194, 5222 (2018). We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. United States v. Roper, No. 5:08-cr-00945-MBS-11 (D.S.C. Apr. 5, 2019). We deny Roper's motions for appointment of counsel and transcripts at government expense. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
