UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
HAROLD STEVEN JACKSON, Defendant.
PETER J. MESSITTE, District Judge.
Defendant Harold Steven Jackson was sentenced to 87 months imprisonment on March 06, 2007 for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g).
Jackson has moved for a modification of his sentence pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). This section permits a court to modify a sentence if a defendant was sentenced to a term of imprisonment based on a sentencing range that has subsequently been lowered by the Sentencing Commission pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 994(o). If the sentencing range has been so lowered, the court must also consider the factors set forth in 28 U.S.C. § 3553(a) and determine whether a reduction is consistent with applicable policy statements by the Sentencing Commission. See 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2).
Jackson's Motion does not identify what amendment subsequently lowered the sentencing range under which he was imprisoned. Section 1B1.10(c) of the Sentencing Guidelines lists all of the retroactively applicable amendments. A review of the amendments since 2007 indicates that none would change the range of Jackson's sentence under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g). Jackson is thus ineligible for a reduction in his sentence under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), because he was not sentenced pursuant to a range that has subsequently been lowered by the Sentencing Commission.
Jackson's Motion is hereby DENIED.
A separate Order shall ISSUE.
