UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
PHILIP GORDON PAAUWE,
Defendant-Appellant.
   No. 19-2071
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Western District of Michigan at Grand Rapids.
No. 1:19-cr-00041-1—Paul Lewis Maloney, District Judge.
Decided and Filed: August 4, 2020
Before: NORRIS, NALBANDIAN, and READLER, Circuit Judges.

OPINION
_________________________

CHAD A. READLER, Circuit Judge. Philip Paauwe was sentenced to a 420-month prison term following his guilty plea to Coercion and Enticement of a Minor, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2422(b). The sentencing analysis included application of a five-level enhancement under § 4B1.5(b)(1) of the Sentencing Guidelines due to Paauwe’s pattern of ongoing sexual misconduct. Paauwe argues that application of the enhancement was based on the Guideline’s administrative commentary, not its text, in violation of our recent holding in United States v. Havis, 927 F.3d 382, 386 (6th Cir. 2019) (en banc) (per curiam). Because Paauwe’s enhancement follows from the plain terms of the Guideline itself, we AFFIRM the judgment of the district court.
