United States of America, Plaintiff Appellee, v. Gary Leonard Wells, Defendant Appellant, 16 F.3d 413 (4th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 413 (4th Cir. 1994)

Dec. 16, 1993. Jan. 13, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Frederic N. Smalkin, District Judge. (CR-88-354-JH, CA-93-2442-S)

Gary Leonard Wells, Appellant Pro Se.

John Vincent Geise, Office of the U.S. Atty., Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellee.

D. Md.


Before HALL and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and SPROUSE, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988) motion, in which he claimed error in the calculation of his criminal history and sentence. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit because Appellant waived his right to object to sentencing on appeal by failing to object at his sentencing hearing. See United States v. Davis, 954 F.2d 182, 187 (4th Cir. 1992). Further, there was no plain error in the sentencing calculations. See United States v. Young, 470 U.S. 1, 14-15 (1985). We deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis, dismiss the appeal, and 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.
