Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 83 F.3d 425 (8th Cir. 1996) Submitted April 24, 1996. Filed April 29, 1996

Before BEAM, LOKEN, and MORRIS S. ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.


Paul James Wickham appeals from the 90-month sentence imposed by the district court1  after he pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and using or carrying a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking offense. We have carefully reviewed the record and conclude Wickham knowingly and voluntarily waived his right to appeal by the undertakings in his plea agreement and his statements at the change-of-plea hearing. See United States v. Rutan, 956 F.2d 827, 829 (8th Cir. 1992).

Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.


The Honorable Lawrence L. Piersol, United States District Judge for the District of South Dakota
