Jimmy K. Bassett filed an application for the writ of habeas corpus against S. Lamont Smith, Warden of the Georgia State Prison. The application alleges that the instructions on alibi given by the trial court to the jury placed an illegal burden on him, were misleading and confusing to the jury, and denied him due process of law as guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. After hearing evidence, the trial court remanded him to the custody of the respondent. He appeals to this court. Held:
This case is controlled by the rulings of this court in
Arthur K. Bolton, Attorney General, Harold N. Hill, Jr., Executive Assistant Attorney General, Courtney Wilder Stanton, William R. Childers, Jr., Assistant Attorneys General, for appellee.
