459 F.2d 1392

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
George Harley PERKINS, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals,
Fifth Circuit.

June 6, 1972.

Before THORNBERRY, COLEMAN and INGRAHAM, Circuit Judges.

The appellant, George Harley Perkins, was convicted by a jury of violating the statutes prohibiting the armed robbery of a bank, 18 U.S.C., Sec. 2113(a) (d) and 18 U.S.C., Sec. 924 (c) (2). He was sentenced to imprisonment for terms of fifteen years and three years, consecutively.


On appeal, Perkins complains of the identification furnished by the one bank employee present at the night-time robbery, of the order of proof, and of the admission in evidence of a letter signed by Perkins, written while he was in jail.


We detect no error which would warrant reversal and the conviction is affirmed under our Local Rule 21.1
