Houck v. Stickman, 05-4580

District court's denial of defendant's request for habeas relief from his convictions for kidnapping, aggravated assault, and related offenses is affirmed as defendant has not satisfied the Schlup requirement to open the actual innocence door to allow his procedurally defaulted claims to be considered on the merits as, even taking into account evidence of defendant's affidavits, he has not demonstrated that no reasonable juror would convict him after considering the newly supplemented record.
