D.C. No. 3:05-cr-00076-RRB-1 MEMORANDUM Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Alaska
Ralph R. Beistline, District Judge, Presiding Before: FERNANDEZ, BYBEE, and BADE, Circuit Judges.
This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided by Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3.
Byron Williams appeals from the district court's order denying his motion for a reduction of sentence under the First Step Act. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.
Williams contends that the district court erred by failing to give sufficient weight to his post-sentencing rehabilitation efforts. Assuming without deciding that Williams was eligible for a sentence reduction under the First Step Act, the district court did not abuse its discretion by concluding that a reduction was unwarranted in light of Williams's misconduct while in custody and his criminal history. See United States v. Kelley, 962 F.3d 470, 479 (9th Cir. 2020); see also United States v. Gutierrez-Sanchez, 587 F.3d 904, 908 (9th Cir. 2009) ("The weight to be given the various factors in a particular case is for the discretion of the district court."). Moreover, contrary to Williams's contention, the record reflects that the court considered Williams's arguments and provided a sufficient explanation for its decision. See Chavez-Meza v. United States, 138 S. Ct. 1959, 1965 (2018).
