PEOPLE STATE NEW YORK v. ANGEL RUIZ (05/14/69)

COURT OF APPEALS OF NEW YORK


decided: May 14, 1969.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
v.
ANGEL RUIZ, APPELLANT; THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, V. STEVEN EARL PAUL JONES, APPELLANT

People v. Ruiz, Chief Judge Fuld and Judges Burke, Scileppi, Bergan, Breitel and Jasen concur; Judge Keating taking no part.

 Memorandum. The judgments appealed from should be affirmed. Each of these defendants was tried and adjudicated a youthful offender (Code Crim. Pro., pt. VI, tit. VII-B) prior to May 20, 1968, the date on which the United States Supreme Court handed down its decision in Duncan v. Louisiana (391 U.S. 145). Since the court later held that that decision was to be given "only prospective application" (De Stefano v. Woods, 392 U.S. 631, 633), we do not reach the question whether the Sixth Amendment of the Federal Constitution requires that the right to trial by jury be accorded to persons who are proceeded against as youthful offenders. (Cf. Code Crim. Pro., § 913-g, subd. 3; § 913-h.)

Disposition

In each case: Judgment affirmed in a memorandum.
