US v. Chaney, No. 08-10298

By FindLaw Staff on September 15, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a drug prosecution, a denial of defendant's 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2) motion for a reduced sentence is affirmed where section 3582(c)(2) does not require the district court to determine at all what sentence it would have imposed had Amendment 706 to the Sentencing Guidelines been in effect at the original sentencing, much less to do so mandatorily prior to determining whether a reduction is appropriate.
