The defendant, a bankrupt, was convicted of knowingly and fraudulently concealing from the trustee property belonging to the bankrupt's estate, and of making a false oath in the bankruptcy proceedings. While the property proved to have been concealed was of minimal value, the evidence of the defendant's fraudulent intent was sufficient to sustain the conviction under 18 U.S.C.A. 152.
