Decided January 30, 1939*

306 U.S. 68


The Act of May 10, 1934, provides that, when an indictment is found insufficient after the period of the statute of limitations has expired, a new indictment may be returned during the next succeeding term following such finding during which a grand jury shall be in session. Held that this does not authorize reindictment at the same term during which the first indictment was found defective. P. 306 U. S. 69.
