No. 83-1246.

709 F.2d 19 (1983)

Larry HOLMES, Appellant, v. UNITED STATES of America, Appellee.

United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Decided June 13, 1983.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Gene E. McKissic, Pine Bluff, Ark., for appellant; Jesse L. Kearney, Pine Bluff, Ark., of counsel.

George W. Proctor, U.S. Atty., Robert L. Neighbors, Asst. U.S. Atty., Little Rock, Ark., for appellee.

Before ARNOLD, Circuit Judge, HENLEY, Senior Circuit Judge, and JOHN R. GIBSON, Circuit Judge.


Larry Holmes was convicted of four counts of illegally purchasing food stamps in violation of 7 U.S.C. § 2024(b). Holmes appeals and argues that the trial court should have granted his motion for acquittal because he established as a matter of law that he was entrapped into committing the crimes with which he was charged, and that there was insufficient evidence to sustain his conviction. We affirm.
