Defendant appealed from his sentence of 60 months’ imprisonment for violating the terms of his supervised release after he was found in possession of a firearm. On appeal, defendant challenged the substantive reasonableness of his sentence.
Where the district court did not abuse its discretion in applying weight to the severity of his underlying conviction in determining the length of his sentence because it noted it was not defendant’s first violation, the court affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
