PEOPLE STATE NEW YORK v. JAMES KELLY (10/30/69)

COURT OF APPEALS OF NEW YORK


decided: October 30, 1969.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
v.
JAMES KELLY, APPELLANT

Concur: Judges Scileppi, Bergan, Breitel, Jasen and Gibson. Chief Judge Fuld and Judge Burke dissent.

Judgment affirmed; no opinion.

 Chief Judge Fuld and Judge Burke dissent and vote to reverse in the following memorandum: Defendant's guilt was not proved beyond a reasonable doubt. Although the narcotic drug was found in defendant's apartment in the pocket of a coat belonging to him, the evidence establishes that he did not have exclusive dominion or control of it, that it was hanging on a door in an open room and that any one of a number of persons who were present had ample opportunity to place the drug in the coat pocket.
