Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-6724 Doc: 13 Filed: 10/19/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Ezau Yanez-Hernandez appeals the district court’s order denying relief on his 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) (2012) motion for a sentence reduction. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. See United States v. Muldrow, 844 F.3d 434, 437 (4th Cir. 2016) (providing standard). Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. United States v. Yanez-Hernandez, No. 7:08-cr-00106-D-1 (E.D.N.C. filed May 9, 2017; entered May 10, 2017). We further deny Yanez-Hernandez’s motion to appoint counsel. * 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 decisional process. AFFIRMED * Although the Office of the Federal Public Defender has filed an informal brief on behalf of Yanez-Hernandez, it does not seek appointment as counsel on appeal. 2
