|UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Defendant Augustine Amezola appeals the district court's denial of release pending trial. On July 9, 2002, defendant pled guilty to a superseding information in the district court and was remanded to custody. Because defendant no longer has a legally cognizable interest in the decision whether he should have been released on bail pending trial, his appeal is moot. See Murphy v. Hunt, 455 U.S. 478, 481 (1982) (per curiam) (concluding that a defendant's claim to pretrial bail was moot once he was convicted).
The appeal is DISMISSED as moot.
ENTERED FOR THE COURT
