June 24, 1968.

James E. Wesner, Charlottesville, Va. (Court-assigned counsel), on brief for appellant.

Before BOREMAN, BRYAN and WINTER, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

This is an appeal by a Virginia prisoner, John Lloyd Jacobs, from an order of the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (Butzner, J.) denying his petition for a writ of habeas corpus.

2

Upon careful examination of the record, the briefs filed with this court, and upon consideration of an earlier decision of the same district court (Hoffman, J.) denying a similar petition for habeas corpus relief after an evidentiary hearing on the merits,1 we conclude that the present appeal is without merit.

3

Therefore, the action of the court below in denying Jacobs' petition is

4

Affirmed.
