Submitted: May 26, 1988. Decided: July 19, 1988

Richard Anthony Sanders, appellant pro se.

Barry Steven McNeill, Assistant Attorney General (Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina), for appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, SPROUSE and ERVIN, Circuit Judges.


Richard Anthony Sanders seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Sanders v. Rice, C/A No. 87-338-D (M.D.N.C. Mar. 10, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
