In defendant's appeal from a denial of his motion to reduce his drug and firearm possession sentence in response to a recent change to the federal sentencing guidelines for crimes involving crack cocaine, the order is affirmed where defendant was subject to a statutory minimum sentence greater than the high end of his guideline calculation, whether calculated with or without the crack cocaine amendments.
