ENTRY DENYING AMENDED MOTION FOR RELIEF PURSUANT TO 28 U.S.C. § 2255 AND DENYING CERTIFICATE OF APPEALABILITY - The records and file in this action show that Richmond is not entitled to the relief he seeks. Accordingly, his amended motion for relief pursuant to § 2255 (Dkt. 4) is DENIED, and this action must be dismissed with prejudice. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. This Entry shall also be docketed under the underlying criminal action, No. 1:12-cr-96-TWP-MJD-01. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 22(b), Rule 11(a) of the Rules Governing § 2255 Proceedings, and 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c), the Court finds that Richmond has failed to show that reasonable jurists would find "it debatable whether the petition states a valid claim of the denial of a constitutional right." Slack v. McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000). The Court therefore DENIES a certificate of appealability. (See Order.) Copy to Petitioner via U.S. Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 6/5/2017.(JLS)
