IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
August 11, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
JAMES D. ABNEY, JR.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sylvia H. Rambo United States District Judge
Before the court is Defendant's motion for amended judgment. Defendant cites United States Sentencing Guideline (USSG) 561.3(b)(1)(2) for the authority for this relief. Defendant seeks to have his sentence reduced to account for his federal custody from June 19, 2007 to July 16, 2008.
USSG 561.3(b)(1)(2) does not authorize this court to correct or amend a judgment of sentence. Correcting or reducing a sentence is governed by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 35(a) which provides: "within 15 days after sentencing, the court may correct a sentence that resulted from arithmetical, technical, or other clear error."
Defendant was sentenced on July 16, 2008. His motion is clearly untimely and will be denied.
For the reasons stated in the accompanying memorandum, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT the motion to amend judgment (doc. 59) is DENIED.
Sylvia H. Rambo United States District Judge
