Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 106 F.3d 389 (4th Cir. 1997) Submitted Nov. 26, 1996. Decided Jan. 24, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. James R. Spencer, District Judge. (CA-96-8)

Dexter Drake Coffin, III, Appellant Pro Se. Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.

Before WIDENER, NIEMEYER, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Coffin v. Angelone, No. CA-96-8 (E.D. Va. Apr. 10, 1996). Additionally, we deny Appellant's motions for: 1) a stay of his state court conviction; 2) bail pending his appeal; 3) an expedited appeal; and 4) oral argument. 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.
