COMMONWEALTH PENNSYLVANIA v. JOSEPH J. LEWIS (12/17/82)

SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA


December 17, 1982

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, APPELLEE
v.
JOSEPH J. LEWIS, APPELLANT

No. 80-3-442, Appeal from the Judgments of the Court of Common Pleas, November Term, 1978, Nos. 449, 451 & 453 Philadelphia County - Criminal Div.

Before Justice Rolf Larsen

Author: Larsen

JUSTICE ROLF LARSEN

In this direct appeal from his judgments of sentence, appellant raises five issues: 1) the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to support his convictions; 2) the lower court erred in failing to suppress his confession; 3) the lower court erred by admitting a statement of one of the victims immediately after the shooting; 4) trial counsel was ineffective for failing to present an alibi defense; and 5) trial counsel was ineffective for failing to properly impeach the credibility of a Commonwealth witness. We have reviewed the record and find these contentions to be without merit.

Accordingly, the judgments of sentence are affirmed.
