The petitioner was denied a sentence reduction after he had successfully completed a substance abuse program. The Federal Bureau of Prisons did not exceed its statutory authority in excluding prisoners who had prior, rather than current, convictions for violent offenses from the sentence reduction program. See: Martinez v. Flowers, 164 F.3d 1257 (10th Cir. 1998).
