Anderson v. Nelson,
No. 652, Misc.
Decided April 1, 1968
390 U.S. 523
Comment on petitioner's failure to testify cannot be labeled harmless error where such comment is extensive, where an inference of guilt from silence is stressed to the jury as a basis for conviction, and where there is evidence that could have supported acquittal.
Certiorari granted; 379 F.2d 330, reversed.
