Taylor appeals from his conviction for the possession of 20 gallons of non-tax paid whiskey in violation of Sec. 5604(a) (1), Title 26 U.S.C.A. He asserts two points of error, (1) that the trial court permitted irrelevant, prejudicial, and unconnected evidence to be submitted to the jury; (2) that the trial court erred in admitting statements of Taylor made as a witness for the defense in a prior case that the statements were a coerced confession.


We are convinced that there was no error in admitting the complained of evidence.
