Connor Clerk UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 08-6640 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. PAM TURNER, a/k/a Pamela M. Turner, Defendant - Appellant. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Greenville. G. Ross Anderson, Jr., District Judge. (6:94-cr-00238-GRA-1) Submitted: October 22, 2008 Decided: November 14, 2008 Before NIEMEYER, MOTZ, and TRAXLER, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Pam Turner, Appellant Pro Se. Reginald I. Lloyd, Assistant United States Attorney, Columbia, South Carolina, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Pam Turner appeals the district court's order granting in part her motion under 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2) (2000), seeking a reduction in her sentence based on an amendment to the Sentencing Guidelines. Although the district court granted Turner's motion, it reduced her sentence for distribution of cocaine base from 180 months' imprisonment to 145 months, rather than the requested 121 months. We have reviewed the record and find no abuse of discretion or other reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm. See United States v. Goines, 357 F.3d 469, 478 (4th Cir. 2004) (motion under 3582(c) "is subject to the discretion of the district court"); United States v. Legree, 205 F.3d 724, 727 (4th Cir. 2000). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
