Appellant was indicted and tried on three counts. The jury returned a verdict of guilty on all three counts. The judge thereupon set aside the verdict on the third count, directing entry of a judgment of acquittal on that count. The sentences on the two remaining counts were concurrent.


Appellant urges that the evidence was in some respects insufficient and that the court erred in its instructions to the jury and in directing the judgment. We find no error affecting substantial rights of the appellant.
