Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 900 F.2d 252 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted: Feb. 13, 1990. Decided: March 23, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, at Asheville. Woodrow Wilson Jones, Senior District Judge. (C/A No. 88-147-A-C)

Gerald Walter Jones, appellant pro se.

Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, N.C., for appellees.



Before SPROUSE, CHAPMAN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Gerald Walter Jones 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. Jones v. Dixon, C/A No. 88-147-A-C (W.D.N.C. Sept. 1, 1988). 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.
