The appellant contends that the district court was required by 18 U.S.C. §3553(a) to consider the factors set forth in that section not only when his original sentence was imposed but also when the district court considered the government's subsequent motion for a reduction in sentence. The appellant points to no evidence that pertains to any of the §3553(a) factors and offered no explanation of how any of those factors might have altered the outcome of the district court's deliberations. The appellant failed to identify a single factor that the district court should have, but did not, take into account. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-11232, 07-29-2013.
