448 F2d 770 Brantley v. United States
448 F.2d 770
Raymond I. BRANTLEY, Petitioner-Appellant,
UNITED STATES of America, Respondent-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
September 16, 1971.
Raymond I. Brantley, pro se.
John W. Stokes, Jr., U. S. Atty., E. Ray Taylor, Jr., Atlanta, Ga., for respondent-appellee.
Before GEWIN, GOLDBERG and DYER, Circuit Judges.
Appellant filed a habeas petition in the district court seeking immediate reinstatement of his mandatory release from a five-year federal sentence. He alleged that he had never been informed whether his mandatory release had been revoked although nearly five months had elapsed since his revocation hearing before the parole board.1
Appellant's full sentence expired on June 1, 1971, on which date he was released from federal custody. Thus the appeal is rendered moot and is therefore dismissed.
