U.S. Supreme Court
Moore v. United States, 429 U.S. 20 (1976)
Moore v. United States
Decided October 18, 1976
429 U.S. 20
It was error for the trial judge in a bench trial to rely upon wrongfully admitted hearsay evidence in finding petitioner guilty of a federal narcotics offense, but where the judge did not find petitioner guilty on this evidence alone, the case is remanded to the Court of Appeals to determine whether the wrongful admission of the hearsay evidence was harmless error, and if not, whether petitioner waived objection to it.
Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
