The People v. Moore

OPINION FILED NOVEMBER 18, 1970.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, APPELLEE,

v.

EDDIE MOORE, APPELLANT.



APPEAL from the Circuit Court of Cook County; the Hon. EUGENE L. WACHOWSKI, Judge, presiding.

MR. JUSTICE BURT DELIVERED THE OPINION OF THE COURT:

The defendant, Eddie Moore, was indicted in the circuit court of Cook County on September 24, 1965, for the offenses of unlawful possession and unlawful sale of heroin, a narcotic drug.

DEFENDANT MOORE: Yes, sir.

MR. McDONNELL: And are you completely satisfied with your representation at this time?
