United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Phillip Lee Peterson, Defendant-appellant, 459 F.2d 1389 (9th Cir. 1972)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 459 F.2d 1389 (9th Cir. 1972) May 23, 1972

Charles Robinowitz, Portland, Or., for defendant-appellant.

Sidney I. Lezak, U. S. Atty., Jack C. Wong, Asst. U. S. Atty., Portland, Or., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before CHAMBERS, ELY, and HUFSTEDLER, Circuit Judges.


The appellant, convicted of bank robbery and sentenced under the Youth Corrections Act, appeals. Neither of his two contentions are meritorious.

The District Court did not abuse its discretion in denying a requested continuance and, since the prosecution produced testimony that Peterson participated in a conversation in which the robbery was planned, the evidence was sufficient to support the judgment of conviction.
