matter is before the Court on Defendant George Travis
Williams' (“Defendant”) Motion for
Reconsideration of the Court's Denial of Defendant's
Motion to Reduce Sentence Under Amendment 782 
(“Motion for Reconsideration”) and Motion Seeking
Permission to Supplement Relief Requested Under 18 U.S.C.
§ 3582(c)(2)  (“Motion to Supplement”).
26, 1991, Defendant was convicted by a jury of one count of
conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of cocaine base
(“crack”), in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§
841(a)(1) and 846, one count of possession of more than 50
grams of cocaine base, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §

with intent to distribute cocaine base, in violation of 18
U.S.C. §§ 2 and 1952(a)(3). (; Presentence
Investigation Report (“PSR”) ¶¶ 2-4).
On January 30, 1992, the Court sentenced Defendant to the
bottom of the Guidelines range of three hundred sixty (360)
months imprisonment with ten (10) years of supervised
release. (). At sentencing, the Court held Defendant

the Guidelines range as follows:
Base offense level: 36
Total offense level: 38
Criminal history category: V
Resulting Guidelines range: 360 months - Life

the amount of drugs he was accountable for (10 kilograms of
cocaine base) and no further reductions apply. . . .

August 10, 2016, the Court denied Defendant's Amendment
782 Motion. (). The Court explained that
Defendant was sentenced applying a total offense level of
