OPINION OF THE COURT

PER CURIAM.

view counter
1

Appellant, a labor union official, has been convicted of illegally demanding money from an employer. Sentence was suspended, and a five year period of probation was imposed with the special condition that during probation he not seek or accept employment by any labor union.

2

We are satisfied that the evidence, though equivocal in some particulars, was sufficient to establish a case for the jury and that the sentence was proper under the controlling statutes. The other questions raised on this appeal have been considered and found to be without merit.

3

The judgment will be affirmed.
