US v. Main, No. 08-4088

By FindLaw Staff on August 27, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a drug prosecution, a denial of defendant's motion for a reduction of sentence is affirmed where the district court lacked authority to reduce defendant's sentence under 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c), because the sentence was dictated by his plea agreement pursuant to Fed. R. Crim. P. 11(c)(1)(C), and not the Sentencing Guidelines related to crack cocaine.
