Before Rhodes, P.j., Ervin, Wright, Woodside, Watkins, Montgomery, and Flood, JJ.
[ 198 Pa. Super. Page 119]
OPINION BY ERVIN, J.
Carl Agnew Thomas appeals from the order of the court below refusing the issuance of a rule for a writ of habeas corpus.
The only question presented by the petition is whether the sentence was proper on a bill of indictment to which the district attorney had failed to affix his signature. The defendant signed a waiver of presentment of indictment to the grand jury and to a trial by jury and entered a plea of guilty in conformity with the Act of June 15, 1939, P.L. 400, § 1, 19 PS § 241. This defect was amendable and the case is ruled by Com. ex rel. Conrad v. Ashe, 142 Pa. Superior Ct. 254, 15 A.2d 926.
