United States Court of Appeals
For the Eighth Circuit
United States of America
lllllllllllllllllllllPlaintiff - Appellee
Kenny Eugene Smart
lllllllllllllllllllllDefendant - Appellant
Appeal from United States District Court
for the Southern District of Iowa - Des Moines
Submitted: February 15, 2021
Filed: March 4, 2021
Before SMITH, Chief Judge, ARNOLD and STRAS, Circuit Judges.
After pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, see 18 U.S.C.
§ 922(g)(1), Kenny Smart was sentenced to fifteen years in prison and five years of
supervised release. A few months after Smart completed his prison term, the district
court1 revoked Smart's supervised release because, among other things, he committed
another crime—driving under the influence of alcohol. The district court sentenced
Smart to six months in prison and four years of supervised release. He maintains that
this six-month prison term is substantively unreasonable.
The record shows that Smart completed his imprisonment in May 2020. Since
he challenges the reasonableness of his prison term only (and not the additional term
of supervised release), his appeal is moot. See United States v. Hill,
889 F.3d 953
954 (8th Cir. 2018); see also Owen v. United States,
930 F.3d 989
, 990 (8th Cir.
The Honorable James E. Gritzner, United States District Judge for the
Southern District of Iowa.
