United States of America, Appellee, v. John Wyatt Mullins, Appellant, 432 F.2d 1003 (4th Cir. 1970)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 432 F.2d 1003 (4th Cir. 1970) November 3, 1970

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Danville; H. Emory Widener, Jr., Judge.

James W. Haskins, Martinsville, Va. (Court-appointed counsel), for appellant.

James G. Welsh, Asst. U. S. Atty., for appellee.

Before HAYNSWORTH, Chief Judge, and SOBELOFF and BOREMAN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


The sole question presented by this appeal is the constitutionality of 18 U. S.C. App. § 1202(a) (1), which makes it a crime for a convicted felon to possess any firearm. Since we recently upheld the constitutionality of this statute in United States v. Cabbler, 429 F.2d 577 (4th Cir. 1970), the conviction is

Affirmed.
