No. 43530.

December 29, 1972.

Criminal law — robbery conviction — sufficiency of evidence — trial — representation by counsel.

Appeal by Simeon Wagner from a judgment of the Washington County District Court, John F. Thoreen, Judge, whereby he was convicted of aggravated robbery, and from an order denying his alternative motion for judgment of acquittal or a new trial. Affirmed.

Donald J. Heffernan, for appellant.

Warren Spannaus, Attorney General, and John E. Jansen, County Attorney, for respondent.

Heard before Knutson, C. J., and Otis, Peterson, and Todd, JJ.

Defendant, convicted of aggravated robbery, appeals from the judgment of conviction and the order denying his motion for a new trial, contending, among other things, that the evidence was insufficient as a matter of law on the issue of identity and that his privately retained counsel did not adequately represent him.

We have reviewed the record and proceedings herein and hold that the conviction of defendant is based on evidence which establishes his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt; that no prejudicial errors of law occurred at the trial; and that defendant's counsel adequately represented him.
