See United States v. Abu Ali, 529 F.3d 210, 261 (4th Cir. 2008). Minor argues that his sentence is substantively unreasonable because the sentence he received was greater than those of his co-conspirators. sentences ignore "the need Minor asserts that the disparate to avoid unwarranted sentence disparities among defendants with similar records who have been found (2006). guilty of similar conduct." 18 U.S.C. 3553(a)(6) However, Minor's sentence differed from those of his because his more extensive criminal history co-conspirators yielded a higher Guidelines range. We conclude that Minor has not rebutted the presumption of reasonableness that we apply to a sentence within the properly calculated Guidelines range. Accordingly, we affirm the district court's judgment. 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 3
