ORDER ON DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO ALTER SENTENCE
The defendant Robert Daoust has written me a letter requesting a reduction in the sentence I imposed on June 20, 2011. I applaud Mr. Daoust on his positive attitude, and I understand his desire to spend time with an aging and infirm parent, a very young daughter, and a step-daughter approaching graduation. But I have no authority to alter his sentence. I treat his letter as a motion and I must DENY the motion.
