United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. Terron MCALLISTER, Defendant - Appellant.

No. 20-7138

Decided: January 22, 2021

Before AGEE, WYNN, and DIAZ, Circuit Judges. G. Alan DuBois, Federal Public Defender, Eric Joseph Brignac, Chief Appellant Attorney, OFFICE OF THE FEDERAL PUBLIC DEFENDER, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellant. Robert J. Higdon, Jr., United States Attorney, Jennifer P. May-Parker, Assistant United States Attorney, Kristine L. Fritz, Assistant United States Attorney, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellant.

Terron McAllister appeals from the district court's order denying relief on 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. We have reviewed the record and find that the district court did not abuse its discretion in declining to reduce McAllister's sentence. See United States v. Jackson, 952 F.3d 492, 495-97 (4th Cir. 2020) (reviewing decision on First Step Act motion for abuse of discretion). Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. United States v. McAllister, No. 7:06-cr-00044-D-1 (E.D.N.C. July 20, 2020). 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.
