US v. Byfield, 06-3182

Appeal from a denial of a motion to modify a sentence for possession of cocaine base with intent to distribute is dismissed where: 1) a motion to modify a sentence under 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2) is part of a defendant's criminal proceeding and therefore subject to the 10-day time limit of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure; 2) defendant's notice of appeal was untimely filed; and 3) the government's objection to defendant's notice of appeal was proper because it was raised in the government's initial brief.
