Case: 17-11727 Date Filed: 01/05/2018 Page: 1 of 2 [DO NOT PUBLISH] IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE ELEVENTH CIRCUIT ________________________ No. 17-11727 Non-Argument Calendar ________________________ D.C. Docket No. 2:15-cr-00335-RDP-TFM-10 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, versus JAQUAN MARTEZ YOUNG, a.k.a. "Big Head" Or "Head", Defendant-Appellant. ________________________ Appeal from the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama ________________________ (January 5, 2018) Before TJOFLAT, WILLIAM PRYOR and NEWSOM, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: Case: 17-11727 Date Filed: 01/05/2018 Page: 2 of 2 Jaquan Young appeals the sentence the district court imposed following his plea of guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. 21 U.S.C. ยงยง 841(a)(1), 846. Young argues that the district court clearly erred by imposing a two-level enhancement under section 2D1.1(b)(1) of the Sentencing Guidelines and by declining to apply a mitigating-role reduction under section 3B1.2. But we cannot afford Young any meaningful relief. Young was sentenced to the statutoryminimum sentence of 120 months of imprisonment. So any error in calculating his advisory guideline range was harmless. See United States v. Chirino-Alvarez, 615 F.3d 1344, 1346 (11th Cir. 2010). We affirm. AFFIRMED. 2
