Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 444 F.2d 1092 (3d Cir. 1971) Argued May 6, 1971
Decided July 14, 1971

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey; Leonard I. Garth, Judge.

Ralph J. Kmiec, Kmiec & Palumbo, Camden, N. J., for appellant.

John J. Finnegan, III, Asst. U. S. Atty., Camden, N. J., Herbert J. Stern, U. S. Atty., Newark, N. J., on the brief, for appellee.

Before HASTIE, Chief Judge, and KALODNER and ALDISERT, Circuit Judges.



This is an appeal from a judgment of conviction entered by the District Court pursuant to a jury verdict finding the defendant appellant, Walter Guinn Walser, guilty of conspiring to possess and pass counterfeit money; possession of counterfeit money with intent to defraud; and passing counterfeit money with intent to defraud.

On this appeal Walser challenges as prejudicial error several of the trial judge's rulings on the admission of evidence; his refusal to give requested instructions to the jury; and "in pressuring the jury to reach a verdict."

On review of the record, we are of the opinion that the stated challenges are without merit.

The judgment of conviction will be affirmed.
