United States of America, Appellee, v. Ben Brown Owens, Appellant, 396 F.2d 500 (4th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 396 F.2d 500 (4th Cir. 1968)

Argued May 6, 1968
Decided June 14, 1968

Henry F. Leonnig, Upper Marlboro, Md., (Court-appointed counsel) for appellant.

Theodore R. McKeldin, Jr., Asst. U. S. Atty., (Stephen H. Sachs, U. S. Atty., on brief) for appellee.

Before HAYNSWORTH, Chief Judge, and BOREMAN and CRAVEN, Circuit Judges.


Convicted of the theft of two calculators from Goddard Space Flight Center, Owens has appealed, contesting the sufficiency of the evidence against him and the propriety of the denial by the District Court of certain objections and requests made by his attorney. We find there was sufficient evidence from which the jury could find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and there were no reversible errors committed at the trial.
