MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
CARLOS MURGUIA, District Judge.
Defendant Warren K. Parker has filed a Motion Under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 to Vacate, Set Aside, or Correct Sentence by a Person in Federal Custody (Doc. 193). Defendant was convicted on April 9, 2012 and sentenced on November 5, 2012. Defendant did not appeal his conviction. He sent the instant motion for filing on October 22, 2016 (giving defendant the benefit of the doubt).
Federal prisoners must file § 2255 motions within a one-year period of limitations, which runs from the latest of:
28 U.S.C. § 2255(f).
When a defendant does not timely appeal a conviction or sentence, it becomes "final" for purposes of § 2255(f)(1) at the expiration of the time for filing an appeal, and the one-year period begins running from that date of expiration. See United States v. Sandoval, 371 F. App'x 945, 948 (10th Cir. 2010) (citations omitted). This one-year period is "subject to equitable tolling but only `in rare and exceptional circumstances.'" Gibson v. Klinger, 232 F.3d 799, 808 (10th Cir. 2000) (quoting Davis v. Johnson, 158 F.3d 806, 811 (5th Cir. 1998)).
The court sentenced defendant in November 2012. He did not timely appeal, and the one-year period of limitation under § 2255 therefore ended in 2013. Defendant does not allege that equitable tolling is appropriate or the statute of limitations should run from a different date. Defendant's current motion, filed in 2016, is untimely.
