Appealing the judgment in a criminal case, Jaime Betancourt-Nunez

(2013), which held that the sentence enhancement provided for in U.S.S.G.

commit a federal drug-trafficking offense. The appellant’s motion for summary
disposition is GRANTED, and the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED.
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.
