U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 368 F.2d 331 (5th Cir. 1966) October 3, 1966
Rehearing Denied November 4, 1966

Frank B. Stow, Gainesville, Ga., for appellant.

Charles B. Lewis, Jr., Asst. U. S. Atty., Charles L. Goodson, U. S. Atty., Thomas K. McWhorter, Asst. U. S. Atty., for appellee.

Before RIVES, BELL, and THORNBERRY, Circuit Judges.


This is an appeal from a judgment entered after a jury verdict of guilty on a four count indictment charging appellant with having violated the internal revenue laws relating to illicit distilled spirits. 26 U.S.C.A. §§ 5179(a); 5205(a) (2); 5601(a) (1), (4); 5604(a) (1); and 5686.

The record demonstrates a sufficiency of evidence to warrant the conviction; no illegal search; and no error in admitting a prior felony conviction, after appellant testified, for purposes of impeachment.
