Alfred Sherman Thomas, Jr., Appellant Pro Se.

Thomas Cauthorne Daniel, Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee .


Alfred Sherman Thomas, Jr., seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (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 deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Thomas v. Muncy, No. CA-90-1905-N (E.D. Va. Sept. 9 and Oct. 3, 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.
