Prior to his federal sentencing for drug convictions, the defendant-appellant served seven months in state prison for related conduct. At sentencing, the district court reduced his mandatory-minimum sentence by seven months, over the government’s objection, to reflect his discharged state sentence. But absent some form of congressional authorization not present here, U.S. Sentencing Guidelines § 5K2.23 does not permit a district court to adjust a federal sentence below the statutory minimum to account for a related state sentence that has already been discharged.
Reversed and remanded.
