v.
Phillip Lee PETERSON, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 72-1091.

United States Court of Appeals,
Ninth Circuit.

May 23, 1972.

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

Before CHAMBERS, ELY, and HUFSTEDLER, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

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

2

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.

3

Affirmed.
