Issue: Whether the government, at sentencing, may withhold a motion for a third-level reduction for acceptance of responsibility under the United States Sentencing Guideline § 3E1.1(b) — for the defendant who “has assisted authorities in the investigation or prosecution of his own misconduct by timely notifying authorities of his intention to enter a plea of guilty, thereby permitting the government to avoid preparing for trial and permitting the government and the court to allocate their resources efficiently” — on the ground that the defendant proceeded to a hearing on a motion to suppress evidence.
