Jerry Hebert pled guilty to bank robbery. At his sentencing, the court asked the BOP to treat Hebert for a gambling addiction, and pornography and sex addiction. Hebert appealed.
The Sixth Circuit dismissed Hebert’s appeal, holding that it lacked jurisdiction to consider challenges to a district court’s “request for evaluation and counseling.” “[T]he district court’s request,” the court wrote, “is [not] the type of ‘final sentence’ that Congress intended appellate courts to review.”
See: United States v. Hebert, 584 F.3d 691 (6th Cir. 2009).
