United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Willie James Robinson, Defendant-appellant, 484 F.2d 959 (5th Cir. 1973)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 484 F.2d 959 (5th Cir. 1973) Oct. 16, 1973

David Cerf, court-appointed, Miami, Fla., for defendant-appellant.

Robert W. Rust, U. S. Atty., Michael P. Sullivan, Theodore R. Gibson, II, Asst. U. S. Attys., Miami, Fla., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before GEWIN, AINSWORTH and MORGAN, Circuit Judges.


Appellant Robinson was convicted by a jury of assaulting a federal officer in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 111. He attacks his conviction on two grounds: (1) the denial of his right to a speedy trial, and (2) the identification procedures were impermissibly suggestive.

Upon examination of the record we find that neither of appellant's grounds have merit. His conviction, therefore, is affirmed.
