JOHNNY LANG, also known as Melvin Pitchford,
(D.C. No. 01:01-CR-47-TC)
Defendant Johnny Lang appeals the district court's order denying his motion for release pending appeal. On October 27, 2004, the district court held a hearing on Mr. Lang's motion for release pending appeal. The district court determined that Mr. Lang failed to establish by clear and convincing evidence that he is not a danger to the community, which is a threshold requirement for release under 18 U.S.C. § 3143(b)(1). The district court denied Mr. Lang's motion on this basis and Mr. Lang now appeals from that order.
We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291 and 18 U.S.C. § 3145(c). We have reviewed the briefs, the record, and the applicable law. Because the record supports the district court's determination that Mr. Lang did not establish by clear and convincing evidence that he is not a danger to the community, we AFFIRM the judgment for substantially the same reasons stated by the district court in its Order filed November 8, 2004.
