Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 131 F.3d 144 (8th Cir. 1997)

Submitted: November 17, 1997. Filed: December 4, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.



Pursuant to a written plea agreement, Joseph Otis Ramsey pleaded guilty to bank robbery, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a). The district court1  imposed a sentence of 30 months' imprisonment, three years' supervised release, and restitution. This appeal followed. Counsel has filed a brief under Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and Ramsey has not filed a supplemental brief.

In his Anders brief, counsel argues that the district court erred in imposing restitution. We conclude that Ramsey failed to preserve his right to challenge the imposition of restitution on appeal because he failed to object at sentencing. In any event, we find no clear error. See United States v. Kessler, 48 F.3d 1064, 1066 (8th Cir. 1995) (reviewing for plain error where defendant failed to preserve challenge to imposition of restitution by not objecting at sentencing).

After conducting the record review required by Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 80 (1988), we find no non-frivolous issues.

The judgment is affirmed.


The Honorable Jean C. Hamilton, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
