Pg: 2 of 3
Jon Phillip Dumire pled guilty, pursuant to a Fed. R. Crim. P. 11(c)(1)(C) plea
agreement, to being a felon in possession of a firearm, in violation of 18 U.S.C.
§ 922(g)(1) (2012). The district court imposed a sentence of 72 months’ imprisonment,
within the range agreed to by the parties in the plea agreement. On appeal, counsel has
filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), questioning whether
the district court correctly found that malicious wounding qualified as a crime of violence
pursuant to U.S. Sentencing Guidelines Manual § 2K2.1(a)(4)(A) (2016). Dumire has
filed a pro se supplemental brief further contending that his sentence is substantively
unreasonable. We affirm in part and dismiss in part.
Generally, we review a defendant’s sentence “under a deferential abuse-ofdiscretion standard.” Gall v. United States, 552 U.S. 38, 41 (2007). “However, not all
sentences are subject to appellate review.” United States v. Williams, 811 F.3d 621, 62223 (4th Cir. 2016). In this case, we lack jurisdiction to review Dumire’s sentence of
imprisonment because the district court sentenced Dumire in accordance with the terms
of his Rule 11(c)(1)(C) agreement, Dumire’s sentence is not unlawful, nor was the
sentencing range in the agreement expressly based on the Sentencing Guidelines. See id.
In accordance with Anders, within the constraints set forth in Williams, 811 F.3d at
621, we have reviewed the entire record in this case and have found no meritorious issues
for review. We therefore dismiss Dumire’s challenge to his sentence of imprisonment
and affirm the remainder of the district court’s judgment. This court requires that counsel

inform Dumire, in writing, of the right to petition the Supreme Court of the United States
for further review. If Dumire requests that a petition be filed, but counsel believes that
such a petition would be frivolous, then counsel may move in this court for leave to
withdraw from representation. Counsel’s motion must state that a copy thereof was
served on Dumire.
We 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
