OPINION
_________________________

JANE B. STRANCH, Circuit Judge. Andrew Martin filed a § 2255 motion to vacate his sentence, arguing that his attorneys’ ineffective assistance cost him a three-point sentencing reduction for acceptance of responsibility. The district court denied Martin’s motion without holding an evidentiary hearing. Because the district court abused its discretion by declining to hold an evidentiary hearing, we REVERSE the district court’s order and REMAND for further proceedings.
