Alfred Drakeford, Sr., Petitioner-appellant, v. Laurie Bessinger, Attorney General of South Carolina,respondents-appellees, 929 F.2d 692 (4th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Columbia. Solomon Blatt, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-88-2832)
Alfred Drakeford, Sr., appellant pro se.
Salley Wood Elliott, Assistant Attorney General, Columbia, S.C., for appellees.
Before WILKINSON and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Alfred Drakeford, Sr., 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge 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. Drakeford v. Bessinger, CA-88-2832 (D.S.C. July 16, 1990).1 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.
We also deny Drakeford's "Motion to Delay Appeal."
