Lawrence C. Pope, Appellant, v. United States of America, Appellee, 398 F.2d 834 (5th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 398 F.2d 834 (5th Cir. 1968) July 24, 1968

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas; Jack Roberts, Judge.

Lawrence C. Pope, pro se.

Ralph H. Harris, III, Asst. U. S. Atty., Ernest Morgan, U. S. Atty., San Antonio, Tex., for appellee.

Before TUTTLE and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges, and BREWSTER, District Judge.


The appellant's lengthy motion to vacate sentence, 28 U.S.C. § 2255, was denied without a hearing. Twenty-nine grounds for relief were asserted. These were carefully reviewed and rejected by the district court in an opinion appearing at 287 F. Supp. 214.

Upon a careful consideration of the voluminous record, including the trial transcript, we find no reversible error of law, nor clear error in the findings of fact. See United States v. Re, 2 Cir. 1967, 372 F.2d 641, cert. denied 388 U.S. 912, 87 S. Ct. 2112, 18 L. Ed. 2d 1352. Delegal v. United States, 5 Cir. 1966, 363 F.2d 433; United States v. Gernie, 2 Cir. 1961, 287 F.2d 637, cert. denied 368 U.S. 854, 82 S. Ct. 91, 7 L. Ed. 2d 52; United States v. Schultz, 7 Cir. 1961, 286 F.2d 753.

The judgment of the district court is affirmed.
