United States v. Jarrett

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD CIRCUIT.


decided: March 25, 1971.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
v.
ERIC MARTIN JARRETT, APPELLANT.

Before HASTIE, Chief Judge, and ADAMS and GIBBONS, Circuit Judges.

Opinion OF THE COURT

Per Curiam:

After a trial before the district court sitting without a jury, the appellant was found guilty of willfully refusing to submit to induction under the Universal Military Training and Service Act. On June 30, 1970 the district court denied a motion for a new trial. This appeal followed. However, no sentence has yet been imposed pursuant to the conviction.

Neither the order finding the accused guilty nor the order denying a new trial is an appealable final order absent any imposition of sentence. United States v. Knight, 3d Cir. 1947, 162 F.2d 809. "To create finality it was necessary that petitioner's conviction should be followed by sentence. * * *" Berman v. United States, 1937, 302 U.S. 211, 212, 58 S. Ct. 164, 166, 82 L. Ed. 204.

This appeal will be dismissed for want of an appealable order.
