On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit found that Odili's mistreatment in the Panamanian prison didn't warrant a downward departure in his sentence. It also found that he was more than just a minor player in the smuggling operation, and that the amount of cocaine in his possession had not been miscalculated. Finally, the appellate court found no problem with the Commission increasing Odili's supervision by 4 months to compensate for a reduction in his confinement.
Hence, Odili's appeal was dismissed. See: Odili v. United States Parole Commission, 474 F.3d 1255 (11th Cir. 2007).
