IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JOSE ANTONIO MANCILLA,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CASE NO. 1:15-CV-313-WKW
On April 18, 2017, the Magistrate Judge filed a Recommendation (Doc. # 12)
to which no timely objections have been filed. Upon an independent review of the
record and upon consideration of the Recommendation, it is ORDERED that
The Recommendation (Doc. # 12) is ADOPTED on grounds that
Petitioner’s motion is untimely under 28 U.S.C. § 2255(f)1;
Petitioner’s motion to vacate, set aside, or correct sentence under 28
U.S.C. § 2255 (Doc. # 2) is DENIED; and
This action is DISMISSED with prejudice.
The Recommendation includes a footnote that incorrectly states that Padilla v. Kentucky,
559 U.S. 356 (2010), was decided after Mancilla was sentenced. (See Doc. # 12, at 3 n.2.)
Although this footnote is superfluous to the Recommendation’s ultimate finding of untimeliness,
this Order clarifies that Mancilla’s sentencing post-dated Padilla.
A separate final judgment will be entered.
DONE this 30th day of May, 2017.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
