Jeffery James Godel, Appellant. * * * * Appeal from the United States * District Court for the * District of Nebraska. * * [UNPUBLISHED] * ___________ Submitted: July 22, 2010 Filed: July 23, 2010 ___________ Before WOLLMAN, MELLOY, and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges. ___________ PER CURIAM. Jeffery Godel was sentenced in 2008 to 151 months in prison. The district court later granted the government's Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 35(b) motion based on Godel's substantial assistance, and reduced his sentence to 90 months. Godel appeals.

Accordingly, we grant counsel leave to withdraw and we dismiss this appeal. ______________________________ -2-
