Aug. 1, 1988


Before LIVELY and MILBURN, Circuit Judges, and CONTIE, Senior Circuit Judge.


ORDER

This case has been referred to a panel of the court pursuant to Rule 9(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit. Upon examination of the record and the briefs, this panel unanimously agrees that oral argument is not needed. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a).

This pro se federal prisoner appeals the district court's denial of his motion to vacate sentence under 28 U.S.C. § 2255.

Petitioner was sentenced to eight years imprisonment for a narcotics conspiracy, two counts of filing false tax returns, and distribution of controlled substances, pursuant to a plea agreement. He alleged that the plea agreement was invalid and that he had received ineffective assistance of counsel.

Upon review, we conclude that the district court properly denied petitioner's motion to vacate. Accordingly, the district court's order is hereby affirmed for the reasons stated by it. Rule 9(b) (5), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
