Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 30 F.3d 138 (8th Cir. 1994)

Submitted: July 25, 1994. Filed: August 9, 1994

Before BOWMAN, MAGILL, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


John G. Adeleye, the appellant, was convicted on October 21, 1993, after a two-day jury trial on one count of possession with intent to distribute 100.7 grams of heroin, in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (1). The district court1  sentenced Adeleye on February 16, 1994, to seventy-six months imprisonment and four years of supervised release.

Adeleye's appeal raises the question whether it is error for a trial court to permit testimony about the defendant's physical actions and expressions as evidence of his knowledge and intent, when some of these characteristics also fit a drug courier profile. Adeleye also challenges a two-point increase in his criminal history score claiming that he was unaware of a previous sentence of probation. Adeleye appeals both his conviction and sentence.

Having carefully reviewed the case, we conclude that Adeleye's arguments lack merit. No error of law appears, none of the district court's findings of fact are clearly erroneous, and an opinion would lack precedential value. Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is affirmed without further discussion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Stephen N. Limbaugh, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri,
