US v. Mabry, 06-2867

Denial of an inmate's habeas corpus petition is affirmed where: 1) defendant knowingly and voluntarily waived his right to both direct and collateral appeals in his plea agreement; 2) counsel's failure to file an appeal upon defendant's request did not give rise to a presumption that the waiver worked a "miscarriage of justice"; and 3) on the facts presented, no miscarriage of justice resulted from the waiver.
