HOLLIS v. THE STATE.
51540.
CLARK, Judge.
Burglary. Hall Superior Court. Before Judge Blackshear.
Appellant Hollis and co-defendant Miller were jointly tried on a charge of burglary. Both were convicted. Appellant alone brings this appeal from the trial court's denial of his amended motion for a new trial. Held:
Appellant's two enumerations assert that the trial court erred in improperly limiting the closing argument of the attorneys representing the two defendants. Appellant and Miller were represented by different counsel. Appellant's attorney (not present counsel on appeal) stated that he wanted fifteen minutes for his closing argument. This request was granted and appellant's counsel presented his closing argument without interruption or limitation by the court. While it appears that the trial judge limited to thirty minutes the closing argument of counsel for co-defendant Miller, appellant's attorney offered no objection below to this judicial action.
Appellant's enumerations are accordingly without merit.
Jeff C. Wayne, District Attorney, Roland H. Stroberg, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
Smith, Smith & Frost, Steven P. Gilliam, for appellant.
SUBMITTED JANUARY 12, 1976 -- DECIDED JANUARY 19, 1976.
