US v. Cobb, 08-1213

In an appeal from a district court's denial of defendant's motion to reduce his crack cocaine sentence under Amendment 706 to the Sentencing Guidelines, the denial of the motion is reversed where: 1) defendant's sentence was based on the Sentencing Guidelines because the parties based their plea agreement on the properly computed guideline range, and the stipulated sentence fell within this range; and 2) contrary to the ruling below, the court had authority to reduce defendant's sentence under 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2).
