UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ANDREW CARLOS DELFELD, also known as “Draven”,
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Northern District of Texas
USDC No. 4:16-CR-112-2
Before KING, ELROD, and HIGGINSON, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Andrew Carlos Delfeld appeals the 240-month sentence imposed for his
conviction for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled
substance. He argues that the district court failed to comply with Federal Rule
of Criminal Procedure 32(i)(3)(B) when it denied an adjustment under U.S.S.G.
§ 3E1.1 without entering specific factual findings resolving his argument that
this is an “extraordinary case” in which he should receive the adjustment for

acceptance of responsibility despite his conduct supporting an enhancement
for obstruction of justice. Because Delfeld did not object in the district court to
the alleged failure to comply with Rule 32(i)(3)(B), review is for plain error.
See United States v. Mondragon-Santiago, 564 F.3d 357, 361 (5th Cir. 2009).
The district court made implicit findings by adopting the presentence
report, which satisfied Rule 32 because the findings are so clear that this court
is not left to “‘second-guess’” the basis for the denial of the § 3E1.1 adjustment.
United States v. Ramirez-Gonzalez, 840 F.3d 240, 246 (5th Cir. 2016). Delfeld
has not demonstrated error, plain or otherwise, under Rule 32(i)(3)(B). See
Mondragon-Santiago, 564 F.3d at 361.
The district court’s judgment is AFFIRMED.
