view counter
1

Ronald Paul Adams appeals from an order denying his petition for the writ of habeas corpus. After a hearing the district court denied the writ because of his failure to exhaust state remedies. We affirm that judgment without prejudice to the right of Adams to seek postconviction relief in the state courts and in appropriate circumstances to seek relief in the federal courts upon exhaustion of those remedies.

Affirmed.
