United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Jerome Harris, Defendant-appellant, 460 F.2d 1250 (9th Cir. 1972)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 460 F.2d 1250 (9th Cir. 1972) May 15, 1972

Leonard L. Nolting, Oakland, Cal., for defendant-appellant.

William D. Keller, U. S. Atty., Howard B. Frank, Barbara Meiers, Asst. U. S. Attys., Los Angeles, Cal., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before MERRILL, ELY, and WRIGHT, Circuit Judges.


Harris was convicted of bank robbery while using a deadly weapon. 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a), (d). His only significant contention on this appeal is that the prosecution did not prove that the firearm in question was in operable condition. The weapon was introduced into evidence as an exhibit, and we have examined it. That it is operable is not open to question.
