United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Shapat Ahdawan NABAYA, a/k/a Norman Abbott, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 20-7210

Decided: January 22, 2021

Before AGEE, WYNN, and DIAZ, Circuit Judges. Shapat Ahdawan Nabaya, Appellant Pro Se.

Shapat Ahdawan Nabaya was convicted of retaliating against a federal officer by false claim and making a false statement in bankruptcy, and the district court sentenced him to 71 months’ imprisonment. In March 2019, we affirmed Nabaya's criminal judgment on direct appeal. United States v. Nabaya, 765 F. App'x 895, 902 (4th Cir. 2019). Nabaya has now filed a second notice of appeal of the same criminal judgment. Because we previously affirmed this criminal judgment, we dismiss the appeal as duplicative. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.



Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
