UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Russell David MCGREGOR, aka Rusty, Defendant-Appellant.
Decided: March 11, 2020
Before: MURGUIA, CHRISTEN, and BADE, Circuit Judges.
Adam McMeen Flake, Assistant U.S. Attorney, USLV - Office of the U.S. Attorney, Las Vegas, NV, Elizabeth Olson White, Esquire, Assistant U.S. Attorney, USRE - Office of the US Attorney, Reno, NV, for Plaintiff-Appellee Aarin Kevorkian, Assistant Federal Public Defender, Federal Public Defender's Office Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV, for Defendant-Appellant
Russell David McGregor appeals from the district court's order denying his motion for early termination of supervised release under 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(1). We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.
We review for abuse of discretion the district court's denial of a motion for early termination of supervised release. See United States v. Emmett, 749 F.3d 817, 819 (9th Cir. 2014). Contrary to McGregor's contention, the district court applied the correct legal standard when evaluating his motion. See 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(1); Emmett, 749 F.3d at 819. Moreover, the record reflects that the court considered McGregor's arguments in favor of early termination and sufficiently explained its reasons for rejecting those arguments, including the nature of McGregor's offenses and his history on supervision. See Emmett, 749 F.3d at 820-22. The court did not abuse its broad discretion in concluding that early termination of supervised release was not in the interest of justice. See 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(1); Emmett, 749 F.3d at 819.
