United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. W. C. Wilkins, Donald Leon Scott and Johnny Leslie Fauls, Defendants-appellants, 437 F.2d 1318 (5th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 437 F.2d 1318 (5th Cir. 1971) February 10, 1971

Appeals from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama at Mobile; Daniel Holcombe Thomas, Chief Judge.

Thomas M. Haas, Mobile, Ala., for defendants-appellants.

C. S. White-Spunner, Jr., U. S. Atty., Irwin W. Coleman, Jr., Asst. U. S. Atty., Mobile, Ala., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before JOHN R. BROWN, Chief Judge and WISDOM, and RONEY, Circuit Judges.


The defendants, Donald Leon Scott, Johnny Leslie Fauls and W. C. Wilkins, were indicted on September 20, 1968, for violation of the Internal Revenue Laws with regard to moonshine whiskey. Although the appeal is prosecuted in forma pauperis, the defendants are represented by the same retained counsel of their own choosing who represented them at the trial.

The Court has carefully considered all of the contentions the defendants-appellants have raised on this appeal. We have read the briefs and the record. There is no merit in any of the appellants' contentions. See Rule 21.

The judgment is affirmed.
