v.
RUFUS CURRY, APPELLANT

COUNSEL

Robert B. Mozenter, Philadelphia, for appellant.

Steven H. Goldblatt and Deborah E. Glass, Assistant District Attorneys, and F. Emmett Fitzpatrick, District Attorney, Philadelphia, for Commonwealth, appellee.

Watkins, President Judge, and Jacobs, Hoffman, Cercone, Price, Van der Voort and Spaeth, JJ. Cercone, J., dissents on the basis of Commonwealth v. McCusker, No. 2850 Alloc.Dkt., filed September 21, 1977. Price, J., dissents and would affirm the judgment of sentence because the voluntariness of appellant's failure to file a motion to withdraw his guilty plea is not raised. Watkins, former President Judge, did not participate in the consideration or decision of this case.
