The appellant appeals his convictions and sentence resulting from his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to rob an armored truck. Regarding entrapment, there is no evidence of a lack of predisposition: No evidence in the record indicating that the appellant hesitated once the plan became one of armed robbery instead of non-violent theft; that the appellant was unwilling to use guns; that the appellant did anything other than promptly avail himself of the opportunity to carry out an armed robbery once the plot was presented to him. The district court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 12-20093, 06-05-2013.
