UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Calvin Mayfield JONES, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.

June 13, 1975.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Ray L. Ledbetter, Jr., Birmingham, Ala., (Court-appointed), for defendant-appellant.

Wayman G. Sherrer, U. S. Atty., Melton L. Alexander, Asst. U. S. Atty., Birmingham, Ala., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before THORNBERRY, MORGAN and RONEY, Circuit Judges.


Appellant Calvin Mayfield Jones, seeks reversal of his conviction for possession of unregistered sawed-off shotguns in violation of 26 U.S.C. § 5861(d). He argues there was insufficient evidence, that certain evidence was improperly admitted, that the trial court made prejudicial comments so as to deprive him of a fair trial, and that its instructions were erroneous. We find these arguments to be without merit and affirm the convictions.
