31285.
JORDAN, Justice.
Armed robbery, etc. Bibb Superior Court. Before Judge Morgan.
Appellant was convicted of escaping confinement after conviction, and armed robbery and aggravated assault during the escape.
Wiggins v. Hopper, 235 Ga. 85 (218 SE2d 826) (1975); Krist v. State, 133 Ga. App. 197 (210 SE2d 381) (1974). See Estelle v. Williams, ---- U. S. ---- (96 SC 1691, 48 LE2d 126) (1976).
2. The trial court did not err in admitting evidence of a prior conviction for armed robbery since proof of lawful confinement was a necessary element in proving the crime of escape. Code Ann. 26-2501; Dixon v. State, 234 Ga. 157 (215 SE2d 5) (1975).
3. There was no error in denying appellant's motion for directed verdict on the charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault. There was ample evidence to support the conviction for these offenses.
