Court of Appeals of Missouri, Eastern District, Third Division
March 25, 2014
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent,
TRAVIS A. JAMES, Defendant/Appellant
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Jefferson County. 09JE-CR04926-01. Honorable Robert G. Wilkins.
FOR APPELLANT: Samuel E. Buffaloe, Columbia, MO.
FOR RESPONDENT: Chris Koster, Attorney General, Adam Stephen Rowley, Assistant Attorney General, Jefferson City, MO.
Before Mary K. Hoff, P.J., Kurt S. Odenwald, J., and Angela T. Quigless, J.
Travis A. James (Defendant) appeals from the judgment upon his conviction by a jury for one count of possession of a controlled substance, heroin, with intent to deliver, in violation of Section 195.211. Defendant was sentenced as a prior and persistent offender to a term of 20 years' imprisonment, to be served concurrently with a sentence Defendant was already serving. We affirm.
We have reviewed the briefs of the parties, the legal file, and the record on appeal and find the claims of error to be without merit. No error of law appears. An extended opinion reciting the detailed facts and restating the principles of law applicable to this case would serve no jurisprudential purpose. We have, however, provided a memorandum opinion for the use of the parties setting forth the reasons for our decision. We affirm the judgment pursuant to Rule 30.25(b).
