Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
PER CURIAM: Willie Barrett seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his motions for clarification of sentence, for transcripts, and to proceed in forma pauperis. In criminal
cases, the defendant must file the notice of appeal within ten days after the entry of judgment. Fed. R. App. P. 4(b)(1)(A). 1
With or without a motion, upon a showing of excusable neglect or good cause, the district court may grant an extension of up to thirty days to file a notice of appeal. Fed. R. App. P.
4(b)(4); United States v. Reyes, 759 F.2d 351, 353 (4th Cir. 1985). The district court entered judgment on August 4, 2009. The notice of appeal was filed on November 4, 2009. 2 Because
Barrett failed to file a timely notice of appeal or to obtain an extension dispense of with the appeal period, we dismiss the the facts appeal. and We legal
Rule 4(b)(1)(A) was amended effective December 1, 2009, to provide a period of fourteen calendar days to file a notice of appeal. This amendment does not affect the timeliness of Barrett's notice of appeal. For the purpose of this appeal, we assume that the date appearing on the notice of appeal is the earliest date it could have been properly delivered to prison officials for mailing to the court. Fed. R. App. P. 4(c); Houston v. Lack, 487 U.S. 266 (1988).
