United States v. Jones

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


November 22, 2010

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
TWAINE JONES, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Stiehl, District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

This matter is before the Court on defendant's pro se motion to modify his sentence (Doc. 110). The defendant asserts that he was improperly sentenced on his concurrent sentence, and the Court should not have counted his possession of a firearm when calculating his sentence. This is, in essence, a collateral attack on his sentence.

No matter what the title placed on the motion filed by the defendant, if the motion actually is one which seeks review of the sentence, it must be filed as a habeas action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. The defendant has filed a previous motion for habeas relief. Jones v. United States, 02-CR-1062, which was denied by this Court and affirmed on appeal (Docs. 45 & 46). The defendant has not sought and received leave to file a second or successive petition, a requirement before this Court can proceed on this motion. 28 U.S.C. § 2244(b)(3). Accordingly, the Court is without jurisdiction to hear this motion to modify and it is DISMISSED.

IT IS SO ORDERED

WILLIAM D. STIEHL DISTRICT JUDGE
