This matter came before the Court on the stipulated motion of the defendant for reduction of sentence pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2).
On September 20, 1999, this Court sentenced Mr. Martinez to a term of imprisonment of 151 months. The parties agree, and the Court finds, that Mr. Martinez is entitled to the benefit of the retroactive amendment reducing crack cocaine penalties, which reduces the applicable offense level.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the term of imprisonment originally imposed is reduced to a term of 135 months.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that all other terms and provisions of the original judgment remain in effect.
Unless otherwise ordered, Mr. Martinez shall report to the United States Probation office closest to the release destination within seventy-two hours after his release.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
