7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Case Name: United States of America v. Ronnie Martin
Case No.: 21-1527
Officials: KANNE, ROVNER, HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.
Focus: First Step Act – Compassionate Release
Ronnie Martin was sentenced to 43 months’ imprisonment for possessing heroin with the intent to distribute. 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1). With his direct appeal of his sentence pending, Martin moved for compassionate release under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(1)(A)(i), raising arguments available on direct appeal. The district court denied the motion. Because Martin shows no “extraordinary and compelling” reason for release, we affirm.
