Submitted: Nov. 15, 1989. Decided: Dec. 18, 1989
Alphonso Lee Haythe, appellant pro se.
Thomas Drummond Bagwell, Assistant Attorney General, for appellees.
Before K.K. HALL, SPROUSE and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.
Alphonso Lee Haythe 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. Haythe v. Murray, C/A No. 88-177-L (W.D. Va. May 22, 1989). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
Haythe's appeal is timely because his notice of appeal was mailed within 30 days of judgment. Houston v. Lack, 56 U.S.L.W. 4728 (U.S. June 24, 1988) (No. 87-5428)
