|DARYL L. KINGSOLVER,
CHARLES RAY; ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF COLORADO,
Daryl Kingsolver, a state prisoner convicted on two counts of sexual assault, seeks a certificate of appealability (COA) to appeal the district court's denial of his habeas corpus petition. To obtain a COA, he must make "a substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right." See 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c).
Kingsolver alleges various constitutional violations arising from his convictions. This court has reviewed his request for a COA, his appellate brief, the district court's order, and the entire record before us. Our review convinces us that Kingsolver's § 2254 petition is not deserving of further proceedings, debatable among jurists of reason, or subject to different resolution on appeal. His request for a COA is DENIED. His motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED. The motion to file an expanded brief is DENIED. This appeal is accordingly DISMISSED.
