, § 1, 19 PS § 1189. The court below, after hearing the matter de novo, entered an order of judgment dismissing the appeal. The defendant took the present appeal. There should have been a finding that the defendant was guilty or not guilty and sentence should then have been imposed. Com. v. Peacock, 118 Pa. Superior Ct. 168, 179 A. 907; Com. v. Brenneman, 172 Pa. Superior Ct. 198, 92 A.2d 894. With the record in this state, Judge WEINROTT suggested to counsel for the defendant that the appeal be withdrawn and that a new trial be granted, after which an appropriate finding would be made and sentence imposed. Counsel for the defendant did not withdraw the appeal.
Judgment reversed with a procedendo.
