Clifton S. Stout, Appellant, v. United States of America, Appellee, 383 F.2d 448 (5th Cir. 1967)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 383 F.2d 448 (5th Cir. 1967) October 6, 1967

Clifton S. Stout, pro se.

J. V. Eskenazi, Asst. U. S. Atty., William A. Meadows, Jr., U. S. Atty., Miami, Fla., for appellee.

Before TUTTLE, GEWIN and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.


Appellant's sole allegation is that his pleas of guilty to five charges of interstate transportation of forged securities, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2314, were not understandingly and voluntarily made. This contention is conclusively refuted by the files and records of the case. Therefore, motion to vacate judgment was properly denied. 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Helpman v. United States, 5 Cir., 1967, 373 F.2d 401; Clark v. United States, 5 Cir., 1966, 367 F.2d 378; Barrett v. United States, 5 Cir., 1962, 302 F.2d 151.
