HARRIS v. THE STATE.
32213.
NICHOLS, Chief Justice.
Armed robbery, etc. Fulton Superior Court. Before Judge Holt.
The appellant was tried in Fulton County Superior Court before a jury and found guilty of two counts of armed robbery, one count of carrying a concealed weapon, and one count of carrying a pistol without a license. Appellant was sentenced to a total of 42 years.
After reviewing the transcript, we find the appellant's contention to be without merit. There is ample evidence to support the jury's verdict. The testimony of the eyewitnesses to the armed robbery, the testimony of the arresting officer and the testimony of the official of the probate court as to the defendant's not having a pistol license supply more than enough evidence for the jury's verdict. See Todd v. State, 235 Ga. 679 (221 SE2d 800) (1975). The evidence is sufficient "to satisfy the mind and conscience beyond a reasonable doubt." John v. State, 33 Ga. 257 (1862).
Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
Lewis R. Slaton, District Attorney, H. Allen Moye, Assistant District Attorney, Arthur K. Bolton, Attorney General, Daryl A. Robinson, Staff Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.
J. Douglas Willix, for appellant.
SUBMITTED APRIL 8, 1977 -- DECIDED MAY 25, 1977.
