Charles D. Nelson appeals the denial of his 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 habeas petition. Nelson contends the district court applied the wrong legal standard in deciding whether a confession Nelson made to a jail house informant was obtained in violation of Nelson's Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to the effective assistance of counsel. We have carefully considered the issue and conclude the district court applied the correct legal standard and properly denied Nelson's petition. We thus affirm without further discussion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The HONORABLE MICHAEL J. DAVIS, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota, sitting by designation
