MICHAEL JOSEPH WHAH, APPELLANT.
Michael Joseph Whah in pro. per.
Richard B. Russell, Dist. Atty., for appellee.
Before Jones, C.j., and Eagen, O'brien, Roberts, Pomeroy, Nix and Manderino, JJ.
Opinion OF THE COURT
The Record is remanded to the Court of Common Pleas of Schuykill County for appointment of counsel and an evidentiary hearing to determine whether defendant-appellant waived his right to file post-verdict motions. If such right has not been effectively waived then post-verdict motions should be filed nunc pro tunc. If the filing of such post-verdict motions has been waived then an evidentiary hearing should be held to determine defendant-appellant's allegation concerning ineffective assistance of counsel. Following disposition of these motions by the trial court, appellate review shall be available.
