USDC No. 4:13-CR-289-1
Before HIGGINBOTHAM, DENNIS, and GRAVES, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Maynor Miguel Oro Orellana pleaded guilty without benefit of a written
plea agreement of illegal reentry following deportation, and he was sentenced

court’s explanation for imposing a period of supervised release was adequate

was no error, plain or otherwise. See id. The judgment is
