Melvin Blackmon, lllllllllllllllllllll Defendant - Appellant, ____________ Appeal from United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri - Kansas City ____________ Submitted: June 21, 2016 Filed: June 29, 2016 [Unpublished] ____________ Before COLLOTON, GRUENDER, and KELLY, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Appellate Case: 16-1240 Page: 1 Date Filed: 06/29/2016 Entry ID: 4419431 Melvin Blackmon directly appeals after the district court1 revoked his supervised release, and sentenced him to 18 months in prison. For reversal, he argues that the revocation sentence is substantively unreasonable. Upon careful review, we conclude that the district court did not impose an unreasonable sentence. See United States v. Miller, 557 F.3d 910, 915-17 (8th Cir. 2009); United States v. Merrival, 521 F.3d 889, 890-91 (8th Cir. 2008). Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. We also grant counsel’s motion to withdraw. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable Gary A. Fenner, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri. -2- Appellate Case: 16-1240 Page: 2 Date Filed: 06/29/2016 Entry ID: 4419431
