United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Raymond C. Johnson, Defendant-appellant, 649 F.2d 368 (5th Cir. 1981)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 649 F.2d 368 (5th Cir. 1981)

Unit A

July 2, 1981.

Kenneth Michael Wright, Lake Charles, La., for defendant-appellant.

Dosite H. Perkins, Jr., Asst. U. S. Atty., Shreveport, La., Gregory K. Moroux, Asst. U. S. Atty., Lafayette, La., for plaintiff-appellee.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.

Before BROWN and GARZA, Circuit Judges, and PETER H. BEER* , District Judge.


The proof of the F.D.I.C. insured status of the bank was sparse as, unfortunately, it too often is. See United States v. Maner, 611 F.2d 107, (5th Cir. 1980).

Nevertheless it was sufficient to sustain the guilty verdict and conviction. The other asserted errors relating to the admissibility or adequacy of the proof to show violation of 18 U.S.C.A. § 1014 are without merit.



District Judge of the Eastern District of Louisiana, sitting by designation
