U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), the district court reduced his sentence of imprisonment to
Thomas was released to supervision on November 7, 2011, but his
release was revoked because he had been convicted of failing to register as a
sex offender in Collin County, Texas. The district court sentenced Thomas to
12 months of imprisonment and 60 months of supervised release. On appeal,
Thomas makes no direct challenge to the district court’s revocation of his
supervised release or the sentence imposed on revocation. He argues, as he
did in the district court, that his original conviction and sentence should be
overturned on double jeopardy grounds. A defendant may not challenge the
validity of his underlying conviction or his original sentence of supervised
release on appeal from the revocation of supervised release. United States v.
Willis, 563 F.3d 168, 170 (5th Cir. 2009). Thomas has shown no error in
connection with his revocation proceedings.
The Government’s motion for summary affirmance is GRANTED. The
motion for an extension of time in which to file a brief is DENIED. The
judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED.
