Remedios Reyes Penaflor appeals pro se the denial of her motion for reduction of the 188-month sentence imposed after her conviction by jury trial for importing methamphetamine and possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a)(1), 952(a), and 960(b)(1).


In her opening brief, Penaflor fails to raise any issue involving the denial of her motion for a reduction of her sentence. Rather, she raises trial and sentencing issues that have already been rejected by this Court in her prior direct appeal (No. 95-10062). Accordingly, Penaflor has abandoned her arguments that the district court erred by denying her motion for reduction of sentence. See e.g. Leer v. Murphy, 844 F.2d 628, 634 (9th Cir.1988) (issues raised in brief but not supported by argument are deemed abandoned).




The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R.App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
