Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides a second Indiana case today

In USA v. Kris Koglin (SD Ind., McKinney), an 8-page opinion, Judge Sykes writes:

Kris Koglin appeals the district court’s denial of his motion for a sentence reduction under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) based on the retroactive 2014 amendment to the drug-quantity sentencing guideline. Because the amendment does not have the effect of lowering Koglin’s guideline sentencing range, he is not eligible for a sentence reduction. * * *

Accordingly, the judge correctly concluded that because Amendment 782 does not have the effect of lowering Koglin’s guideline range, he is ineligible for a sentence reduction. AFFIRMED
