Submitted Aug. 12, 1996. *Decided Aug. 16, 1996


Before: BROWNING, SCHROEDER, and RYMER, Circuit Judges.


MEMORANDUM** 

Ronald Michael Backues appeals the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion to vacate, set aside or correct his sentence for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and bribery. Backues contends that the Double Jeopardy Clause barred his conviction due to the prior civil forfeiture of his property. This contention is precluded by the United States Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Ursery, 116 S. Ct. 2135 (1996).

AFFIRMED.
