IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT United States Court of Appeals
October 24, 2012
Summary Calendar Lyle W. Cayce
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
TUNG THANH NGUYEN, also known as Sammy Nguyen,
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas
Before HIGGINBOTHAM, OWEN, and SOUTHWICK, Circuit Judges.
Tung Thanh Nguyen argues that the 12-month sentence of imprisonment
imposed upon revocation of his term of supervised release violates Tapia v.
United States, 131 S. Ct. 2382 (2011) because the sentencing court selected the sentence based on the court's belief that Nguyen needed drug rehabilitation.
Nguyen was released from prison on October 12, 2012, therefore any argument
that his prison term should be reduced is moot. United States v. Rosenbaum-
Alanis, 483 F.3d 381
, 382 (5th Cir. 2007). DISMISSED.
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR.
