Harris v. Oklahoma, 433 U.S. 682 (1977)

Harris v. Oklahoma

No. 76-5663

Decided June 29, 1977

433 U.S. 682


Where petitioner had been convicted of felony murder based on his companion's killing of a victim during the course of an armed robbery, the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Fifth Amendment barred a separate prosecution of petitioner for the lesser crime of robbery with firearms, since conviction of the greater crime of murder could not be had without conviction of the lesser crime.

Certiorari granted; 555 P.2d 76, reversed.
