United States of America Ex Rel. George Dana Cramer, Appellant, v. A. C. Cavell, Superintendent, State Correctional Institution, at Rockview, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, 368 F.2d 322 (3d Cir. 1967)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 368 F.2d 322 (3d Cir. 1967) Submitted October 17, 1966
Decided November 1, 1966
Certiorari Denied February 13, 1967

See 87 S. Ct. 889.

George D. Cramer, pro se.

P. Hart Beaver, First Asst. Dist. Atty., Lebanon, Pa., for appellee.

Before MARIS, McLAUGHLIN and KALODNER, Circuit Judges.



In this habeas corpus proceeding the relator argues that he was denied counsel at the time he pleaded guilty of the offense of rape in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The district court has found that when the relator was arraigned, competent counsel was appointed to represent him and did so. The district court was in no doubt, nor are we, as to the fact that the relator voluntarily and intelligently pleaded guilty with the advice of competent counsel.

The order of the district court denying a writ of habeas corpus will be affirmed.
