United States of America v. Terrini Griffin
Case Number: 20-2652
Judge: Before LOKEN, WOLLMAN, and KOBES, Circuit Judges.
Court: United States Court of Appeals
For the Eighth Circuit
Plaintiff's Attorney: United States Attorney’s Office
St. Louis, MO - Criminal defense lawyer represented defendant with appealing after the district court revoked her most recent grant of conditional release. Her counsel has moved to withdraw and has filed a brief.
We note that Griffin was released from federal prison on October 16, 2020.
We conclude that her revocation sentence is not moot, see United States v. Melton,
666 F.3d 513, 514 n.3 (8th Cir. 2012), and that the revocation prison term and
supervised release term were both substantively reasonable. The district court
sufficiently considered the relevant statutory sentencing factors and did not give
significant weight to an improper factor or commit a clear error of judgment. See
18 U.S.C. §§ 3553(a), 3583(e); United States v. Miller, 557 F.3d 910, 917 (8th Cir.
2009) (standard of review). Furthermore, the prison term was below the applicable
policy statement range in the Guidelines, see United States v. Feemster, 572 F.3d 455,
464 (8th Cir. 2009) (en banc), and both terms were below the statutory limits, see
18 U.S.C. § 3583(b)(2), (e)(3), (h).
Outcome: Accordingly, we affirm the judgment and grant counsel’s motion to withdraw.
