UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
February 7, 2007
STEVEN L. SPENCER, PETITIONER,
DOMINIC J. MANTELLO, SUPERINTENDENT, COXSACKIE CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas J. McAvoy, Senior U.S. District Judge
DECISION & ORDER
This pro se petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 was referred to the Hon. Victor E. Bianchini, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report-Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule 72.4.
The Report-Recommendation dated January 16, 2007 recommends that the petition be denied and dismissed. No objections have been filed. After examining the record, this Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation and Order is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice. Accordingly, this Court adopts the Report-Recommendation and Order for the reasons stated therein. Further, inasmuch as the Petition presents no viable issues upon which reasonable jurists could debate whether: (a) the sentence was imposed in violation of the Constitution or laws of the United States, or (b) the Court was without jurisdiction to impose such sentence, or (c) the sentence was in excess of the maximum authorized by law, or (d) the sentence is otherwise subject to collateral attack, a Certificate of Appealability pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253 is DENIED. It is therefore
ORDERED that Petitioner's writ of habeas corpus is DENIED and DISMISSED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
