JOSEPH FECONDA, WARDEN OF WASHINGTON COUNTY JAIL, WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, APPELLANT.
Before McLAUGHLIN, HASTIE and FORMAN, Circuit Judges.
Opinion OF THE COURT
A collateral attack upon the appellee's conviction in a state court on charges of attempted rape and attempted incest resulted in the granting of habeas corpus with appropriate provision permitting the retention of state custody for a new trial. On this appeal from that judgment we are satisfied, for the reasons stated in the opinion of the district court, that the accused did not have the effective representation of counsel at a critical stage of his trial.
Accordingly, the judgment will be affirmed.
