The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner is a federal prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. Petitioner is serving a 181 month term of imprisonment following his conviction for unarmed bank robbery (2 counts) in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a), armed bank robbery (2 counts) in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a) and (d) and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1)(A)(ii).
Petitioner raises four grounds for relief challenging his sentence. After carefully reviewing the record, the court orders the petition denied.
