Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 116 F.3d 481 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted May 30, 1997. Decided June 11, 1997

Appeals from the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota.

Before WOLLMAN, MAGILL, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


John W. Perko, Jr. appeals the sentences imposed by the district court1  after he pleaded guilty in separate proceedings to assault and firearm charges. Counsel filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and was granted leave to withdraw. Perko was given an opportunity to file a supplemental brief, but did not do so. We dismiss the appeals, as both of the written plea agreements contained a waiver of Perko's appeal rights, and our review of the record convinces us that Perko knowingly and voluntary waived these rights. See United States v. His Law, 85 F.3d 379, 379 (8th Cir. 1996) (per curiam); United States v. Rutan, 956 F.2d 827, 829 (8th Cir. 1992).


The Honorable Charles B. Kornmann, United States District Judge for the District of South Dakota
