June 18, 1969

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
v.
ROBERT CARAMANTE, APPELLANT



Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Richmond County, rendered April 30, 1965, convicting defendant of burglary and robbery, both in the second degree, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence.
