United States of America, Plaintiff Appellee, v. Christopher J. Brehany, Defendant Appellant, 39 F.3d 1178 (4th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1178 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted Oct. 18, 1994. Decided Nov. 14, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. T. S. Ellis III, District Judge. (CR-94-90-A)

Christopher J. Brehany, Appellant Pro Se. Glenn Cambron Alexander, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Alexandria, Virginia, for Appellee.

E.D. Va.


Before HALL and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order affirming the magistrate judge's decision*  finding Appellant guilty of having a radar detection device on his vehicle while traveling on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in northern Virginia, in violation of Va.Code Ann. Sec. 46.2-1079 (Michie 1994), as assimilated by 36 C.F.R. Sec. 4.2 (1993). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. United State v. Brehany, No. CR-94-90-A (E.D. Va. May 3, 1994). We 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.



This case was initially tried to a magistrate judge under 18 U.S.C. § 3401(a) (1988)
