Alviero Mesa-Lopez, Appellant Pro Se. Leesa Washington, Assistant United States Attorney, Greenville, South Carolina, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Alviero Mesa-Lopez appeals the district court's order denying his motion for modification of sentence pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2) (2006). find no reversible error. We have reviewed the record and Because Mesa-Lopez was not sentenced for a crack cocaine offense, Amendment 706 of the sentencing guidelines has no effect on his sentence. See United States v. Hood, 556 F.3d 226, 228 (4th Cir. 2009) ("Amendment 706 lowered only the crack cocaine offense levels in [U.S. Sentencing Guidelines Manual] 2D1.1."). Therefore, the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion for reduction of sentence, with and we affirm the district court's facts order. and We legal dispense oral argument because the contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
