The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Honorable Edward J. Garcia
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, #89424 Federal Defender DAVID M. PORTER, Bar #127024 Counsel Designated for Service Assistant Federal Defender 801 I Street, 3rd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 498-5700 Attorney for Defendant OMAR J. WILLIAMS
STIPULATED MOTION AND ORDER TO
REDUCE SENTENCE PURSUANT TO 18
U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2)
Defendant, OMAR J. WILLIAMS, by and through his attorney, Assistant Federal Defender David M. Porter, and plaintiff, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, by and through its counsel, First Assistant U.S. Attorney PHILLIP A. TALBERT, hereby stipulate as follows:
1. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), this court may reduce the term of imprisonment in the case of a defendant who has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment based on a sentencing range that has subsequently been lowered by the Sentencing Commission pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 994(o);
2. On January 11, 2008, this Court sentenced Mr. Williams to an aggregate term of imprisonment of 150 months;
3. Mr. Williams' original base offense level was 32, his total offense level was 31, and with a criminal history category of VI, his resulting guideline range was 188 to 235 months. Based on the government's motion, he was sentenced to 150 months on count 1, for possessing cocaine base with intent to distribute in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), and 120 months on count 2 for possessing a firearm as a felon in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g), to be served concurrently with each other for an aggregate term of 150 months;
4. The sentencing range applicable to Mr. Williams was subsequently lowered by the United States Sentencing Commission in Amendment 750. His new base offense level is 28, his total offense level is 27, and with a criminal history category of VI, his new resulting guideline range is 130 to 162 months. A sentence at the low end of the new guideline range with a departure comparable to the reduction he received at the original sentencing would be 104 months;
5. Given that Mr. Williams is subject to a 10-year mandatory minimum, and in light of his substantial assistance, which was the basis for the government's U.S.S.G. § 5K1.1 motion, the United States hereby moves under 18 U.S.C. 3553(e) for the Court to sentence the defendant without regard to the mandatory minimum, to a sentence of 104 months.
5. Accordingly, the parties request the court enter the order lodged herewith reducing Mr. Williams' term of imprisonment to an aggregate term of 104 months on all counts, comprised of 104 months as to count 1 and 104 months as to Count 2, to run concurrently for a total term of 104 months.
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 January 11, 2008, this Court sentenced Mr. Williams to an aggregate term of imprisonment of 150 months. The parties agree, and the Court finds, that Mr. Williams is entitled to the benefit of the retroactive amendment reducing crack cocaine penalties, which reduces the applicable offense level from 31 to 27.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the term of imprisonment is reduced to an aggregate term of 104 months on all counts, comprised of 104 months as to Count 1 and 104 months as to Count 2, to run concurrently for a total term of 104 months.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that all other terms and provisions of the original judgment remain in effect.
Unless otherwise ordered, Mr. Williams shall report to the United States Probation office closest to the release destination within seventy-two hours after his release.
