Appeal: 14-7209 Doc: 19 Filed: 12/23/2015 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Kunta Kenta Redd appeals from the district court’s order denying his 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) (2012) motion to reduce his sentence. A district court’s decision on whether to reduce a sentence under § 3582(c)(2) is reviewed for abuse of discretion, while its conclusion on the scope of its legal authority under that provision is reviewed de novo. United States v. Munn, 595 F.3d 183, 186 (4th Cir. 2010). Our review of the record reveals that the district court did not See United abuse its States Accordingly, we v. discretion Smalls, affirm the 720 in denying F.3d district 193 court’s Redd’s (4th motion. Cir. order. 2013). United States v. Redd, No. 7:08-cr-00043-D-1 (E.D.N.C. Aug. 8, 2014). We deny Redd’s motion to appoint counsel and dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
