Ronald Warren Brown, Petitioner-appellant, v. United States of America, Respondent-appellee, 433 F.2d 1015 (5th Cir. 1970)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 433 F.2d 1015 (5th Cir. 1970) October 28, 1970

Ronald Warren Brown, pro se.

William T. Morton, Asst. U. S. Atty., Augusta, Ga., R. Jackson B. Smith, Jr., U. S., Atty., Richard C. Chadwick, Asst. U. S. Atty., Savannah, Ga., for appellee.

Before BELL, AINSWORTH and GODBOLD, Circuit Judges.


This is an appeal from the district court's denial of a motion to vacate judgment and sentence, 28 U.S.C. § 2255.

The appellant has contended that (1) he did not validly waive counsel at his parole revocation hearing and sentencing; and (2) the district court erred in failing to order a sanity hearing for him at that time, although no request was made for such a hearing.

The district court held that the appellant's contentions are refuted by the files and records of the case. Our examination of the record leaves us without doubt that this ruling is correct. Accordingly the order appealed from is affirmed.



Rule 18, 5th Cir.; see Isbell Enterprises, Inc. v. Citizens Casualty Co. of New York, et al., 5th Cir. 1970, 431 F.2d 409 Part I
