Leoplian J. Gregory, Appellant, v. United States of America, Appellee, 391 F.2d 281 (9th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 391 F.2d 281 (9th Cir. 1968) February 20, 1968

Charles Kellar (argued), Las Vegas, Nev., for appellant.

Joseph Ward (argued), U. S. Atty., Robert S. Linnell, Asst. U. S. Atty., Las Vegas, Nev. (argued), for appellee.

Before CHAMBERS, MERRILL, and DUNIWAY, Circuit Judges.


The judgment of conviction is affirmed.

The objections to the receipt in evidence of fingerprints and handwriting exemplars of Gregory without Escobedo-Miranda*  warnings are not valid. Schmerber v. State of California, 384 U.S. 757, 86 S. Ct. 1826, 16 L. Ed. 2d 908; Gilbert v. State of California, 388 U.S. 263, 87 S. Ct. 1951, 18 L. Ed. 2d 1178; Lewis v. United States, D.C. Cir., 382 F.2d 817.

The objection about no Negro on the jury (one was called but was removed by a peremptory challenge) we reject. There was no timely challenge to the panel.

Other points, too, we find without merit.


Escobedo v. State of Illinois, 378 U.S. 478, 84 S. Ct. 1758, 12 L. Ed. 2d 977; Miranda v. State of Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S. Ct. 1602, 16 L. Ed. 2d 694
