United States of America, Plaintiff and Appellee, v. Joseph Anthony Davis, Appellant, 447 F.2d 1376 (9th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 447 F.2d 1376 (9th Cir. 1971) August 12, 1971
Rehearing Denied September 13, 1971

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

Daniel Kannlen (argued), Somers & Kallen, Santa Monica, Cal., for appellant.

Elgin Edwards, Asst. U. S. Atty. (argued), Robert L. Meyer, U. S. Atty., Los Angeles, Cal., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before CHAMBERS and KILKENNY, Circuit Judges, and POWELL, District Judge.


The judgment of conviction in this selective service case is affirmed.

Davis contends that the implication of Gutknecht v. United States, 396 U.S. 295, 90 S. Ct. 506, 24 L. Ed. 2d 532, and other cases require a finding here that induction was accelerated because of his delinquency. On the record, we think not.

United States v. Davis (9th Cir. 1970), 432 F.2d 1009; Misenhimer v. United States (9th Cir. July 22, 1971) 71-1384; and United States v. Pennington (9th Cir. 1971), 439 F.2d 145, require affirmance. We find United States v. Dobie, 444 F.2d 417 (4th Cir., 1971) distinguishable.

The mandate will issue now.
