SHAW v. THE STATE.
40398.
NICHOLS, Presiding Judge.
Larceny after trust. Jenkins Superior Court. Before Judge Usher.
The State's witnesses testified that the money allegedly converted was entrusted to the defendant for the purpose of paying off a lien on property used to secure an indebtedness owed to the bank by the defendant, yet the documentary and other evidence shows that the fund delivered to the defendant was a loan secured by a note due and payable ninety days thereafter. Held:
"The offense of larceny after trust comprehends a relationship of trust, which must be proved as laid (Silvers v. State, 79 Ga. App. 223, 53 SE2d 388), and does not apply if the relationship between the prosecutor and the accused is merely that of debtor and creditor. Tant v. State, 81 Ga. App. 633 (59 SE2d 557); Huff v. State, 79 Ga. App. 717 (54 SE2d 446)." Gammage v. State, 92 Ga. App. 235 (1) (88 SE2d 174). The verdict was not authorized by the evidence and the trial court erred in overruling the defendant's motion for new trial on the usual general grounds. The special grounds of the motion, for new trial, each being incomplete, are not passed upon.
See Burns v. McLucas, 106 Ga. App. 102 (1) (126 SE2d 309); American Iron &c. Co. v. National &c. Gas Co., 105 Ga. App. 458, 460 (125 SE2d 106).
Cohen Anderson, Solicitor General, contra.
Claud R. Caldwell, for plaintiff in error.
DECIDED OCTOBER 16, 1963.
