US v. Metcalfe, No. 08-1812

District court's post-judgment order denying defendant's motion for a sentence reduction is affirmed as the appeal lacked merit and 18 U.S.C. section 3582(c)(2) is not a vehicle for convicts to raise unrelated sentencing challenges that they had previously overlooked or omitted.
