United States District Court, D. Oregon
June 15, 2015
PHILLIP LEROY HOSKINS, Petitioner,
JEFF PREMO, Superintendent, Oregon State Penitentiary, Respondent.
OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Petitioner, pro se, brings this petition seeking habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner seeks to challenge state court convictions for Rape in the First Degree, ORS § 163.375, Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, ORS § 163.425, and Rape in the Third Degree, ORS § 163.355, because of ineffective assistance of counsel. See Respondent's Exs. 2, 4-5, ECF No. 30-1. Magistrate Judge Patricia Sullivan issued a Findings and Recommendation (F&R) on May 15, 2015, recommending denial. The matter is now before this Court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
Because no objections to the F&R were timely filed, this Court reviews only the legal principles de novo. See United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en bane); see also United States v. Bernhardt, 840 F.2d 1441, 1445 (9th Cir. 1988). Upon review, this Court finds no error in Judge Sullivan's F&R, ECF No. 46.
This Court ADOPTS Judge Sullivan's F&R, ECF No. 46, in full. Petitioner Hoskins's petition for writ of habeas corpus, ECF No. 2, is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
