United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Laroy Randall Campbell, Defendant-appellant, 134 F.3d 379 (9th Cir. 1998)Annotate this Case
Submitted Jan. 12, 1998. **Jan. 15, 1998
Before BROWNING, KLEINFELD, and THOMAS, Circuit Judges.
Laroy Randall Campbell appeals his jury trial conviction and sentence imposed for one count of interstate transportation of falsely made securities in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2314, two counts of uttering counterfeit securities in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 513(a), and two counts of bank fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and affirm.
First, we decline to consider Campbell's ineffective assistance of counsel claims. See United States v. Quintero-Barraza, 78 F.3d 1344, 1347 (9th Cir. 1995) (recognizing that ineffective assistance of counsel claims are best pursued in a collateral proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255).
Campbell contends that the district court erred by imposing restitution for conduct beyond the scope of the offenses of conviction. Campbell, however, never objected during sentencing to the restitution order on this ground. On the contrary, Campbell stated he "had no problem paying any kind of restitution as deemed fit by the Court." In these circumstances, we will not consider his challenge to the restitution order for the first time on appeal. See United States v. Haggard, 41 F.3d 1320, 1329 (9th Cir. 1994).
