Charles D. Boyd, Petitioner-appellant, v. Dr. Charles J. Beto, Director, Texas Department Ofcorrections, Respondent-appellee, 447 F.2d 148 (5th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 447 F.2d 148 (5th Cir. 1971) Aug. 25, 1971

J. Glenn Turner, Dallas, Tex., for petitioner-appellant.

Charles D. Boyd, pro se.

Crawford C. Martin, Atty. Gen. of Texas, Lonny F. Zwiener, Asst. Atty. Gen., Nola White, First Asst. Atty. Gen., Alfred Walker, Executive Asst. Atty. Gen., Robert C. Flowers, Asst. Atty. Gen., for respondent-appellee.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas; William M. Taylor, Jr., Judge.

Before BELL, AINSWORTH, and GODBOLD, Circuit Judges.


This habeas corpus proceeding involving a state prisoner raises evidentiary procedural matters which do not rise to the level of substantial federal constitutional questions. The district court was therefore correct in denying relief.
