Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 955 F.2d 43 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted Feb. 3, 1992. Decided Feb. 14, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, at Charleston. Charles H. Haden, II, Chief District Judge. (CR-88-158-2, CA-91-423-2)

Jesse Kilton Smoot, appellant pro se.

Nancy Carper Hill, Assistant United States Attorney, Charleston, W. Va., for appellee.

S.D.W. Va.


Before WIDENER, HAMILTON and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges.



Jesse Kilton Smoot appeals from the district court's order refusing relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988). 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 affirm on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Smoot, Nos. CR-88-158-2, CA-91-423-2 (S.D.W. Va. Apr. 1, 1991). 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.
