Entry Discussing Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and Denying Certificate of Appealability - Once convicted and after exhaustion or waiver of any right to appeal, a defendant is presumed to stand "fairly and finally convicted." United For the reasons explained in this Entry, the effort of Sylvester Thomas to show otherwise with respect to his state court convictions fails. Having applied the appropriate standard of review, and having considered the pleadings and the expanded record, Thomas's petition for writ of habeas corpus must be denied. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. The Court therefore declines to issue a certificate of appealability. (See Entry.) Copy to petitioner via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 5/19/2017.(RSF)
