451 F2d 596 Lott v. United States
451 F.2d 596
John Thomas LOTT, Petitioner-Appellant,
UNITED STATES of America, Respondent-Appellee.
No. 71-1227 Summary Calendar.*
United States Court of Appeals,
Oct. 26, 1971.
John T. Lott, pro se.
Anthony J. P. Farris, U. S. Atty., James R. Gough, Mary L. Sinderson, Asst. U. S. Attys., Houston, Tex., for respondent-appellee.
Before JOHN R. BROWN, Chief Judge, and INGRAHAM and RONEY, Circuit Judges.
This is an appeal from a denial of a motion to vacate sentence under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255. The movant contends in substance that the evidence was insufficient to prove his knowing possession of heroin. The district court denied the motion on the ground that a previous Sec. 2255 motion presented the same contention. We agree that the district court was not required to consider a second Sec. 2255 motion, especially since the matter of possession was also decided adversely to movant on direct appeal, sub nom. Smith v. United States, 385 F.2d 34 (5th Cir. 1967). Simmons v. United States, 437 F.2d 156 (5th Cir. 1971).
