UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,

United States Court of Appeals,

Jack V. Eskenazi, court-appointed, Federal Public Defender, Miami, Fla., Michael Doddo, Miami, Fla., for defendant-appellant.
Robert W. Rust, U. S. Atty., Robert C. Byrne, Asst. U. S. Atty., Miami, Fla., for plaintiff-appellee.
Before WISDOM, AINSWORTH and CLARK, Circuit Judges.
Appellant Isuman was convicted by a jury of importing six and one-half pounds of marijuana in violation of 21 U.S.C. Sec. 952(a). He was fined $500 and sentenced to imprisonment of ten months with a two-year special parole.
Appellant did not surrender on the date set for execution of the sentence and is presently a fugitive. Under these circumstances, we decline to adjudicate the merits of this case. This appeal is dismissed. Molinaro v. New Jersey, 396 U.S. 365, 90 S.Ct. 498, 24 L.Ed.2d 586 (1970).
