OPINION AND ORDER DENYING PETITIONER'S MOTION TO VACATE SENTENCE UNDER SECTION 28 U.S.C. § 2255 
GERSHWIN A. DRAIN, District Judge.
Bryan Edward Brooks ("Mr. Brooks" or "Petitioner"), an incarcerated person, plead guilty to bank robbery in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a) and is currently serving his sentence in Kansas. Dkt. No. 16. On July 24, 2014, Petitioner received a sentence of 101 months imprisonment. Dkt. No. 34. On May 19, 2016, the Court received a letter from Mr. Brooks, which the Court construes as a Motion to Vacate Sentence under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Dkt. Nos. 66, 67. In his letter, the Petitioner argues that his sentence should be vacated based on the Supreme Court's holding in Johnson v. United States, 135 S.Ct. 2551, 192 L.Ed. 2d 569 (2015). Dkt. No. 66, p. 1 (Pg. ID 351). Specifically, Mr. Brooks contends that Johnson renders his sentence unconstitutional because one of his past crimes no longer qualifies as a crime of violence under the United States Sentencing Guidelines. Id. Relying on Johnson, Mr. Brooks requests a reduction in sentence and appointment of counsel. Id.
On June 14, 2016, the Court ordered the Government to respond to Mr. Brooks' claims. Dkt. No. 67. On August 25, 2016, the Court granted the Government's Motion to Stay Mr. Brooks' claims pending the outcome of Beckles v. United States, 137 S.Ct. 886 (2017). Dkt. No. 74. On March 6, 2017, the Supreme Court decided Beckles and this matter is now ripe for consideration. For the following reasons, the Court will deny Mr. Brooks' Motion to Vacate Sentence Under 28 U.S.C. § 2255.
Mr. Brooks argues that, in light of Johnson, his classification as a career offender was unconstitutional. Dkt. No. 66, p. 1 (Pg. ID 351). Therefore, Mr. Brooks urges the Court to conduct resentencing. Id.
The Supreme Court's opinion in Beckles, however, forbids Mr. Brooks desired result. Mr. Brooks was sentenced in 2014. At that time, the Sentencing Guidelines which were in effect, provided that, "[a] defendant is a career offender if:
U.S.S.G. § 4B1.1(a), dated November 1, 2013 (emphasis added).
The Guidelines define a "crime of violence" as:
U.S.S.G. § 4B1.2(a), dated November 1, 2013 (emphasis added). The clause beginning with "or otherwise" in the § 4B1.2(a) definition above is the residual clause. Mr. Brooks claims that he was sentenced as a career offender based in part on the residual clause in the Sentencing Guidelines.
There is an identical residual clause in the Armed Career Criminal Act ("ACCA"). Johnson held that the residual clause in the ACCA was unconstitutionally vague in the way it fixed a higher range of sentences for certain defendants. See Johnson, 135 S. Ct. at 2555, 2563. However, despite the identical language, the Supreme Court in Beckles rejected adopting Johnson's reasoning to the Sentencing Guidelines. The Supreme Court distinguished the ACCA from the Guidelines:
Beckles v. United States, 137 S.Ct. 886, 892 (2017). Therefore, because Johnson does not apply to the Sentencing Guidelines, Mr. Brooks' reliance on Johnson (and implicitly Beckles), as the basis for resentencing, is misplaced. Accordingly, Mr. Brooks' § 2255 motion must be denied.
For the foregoing reasons Mr. Brooks' Petitioner's Motion to Vacate Sentence Under Section 28 U.S.C. § 2255  is
