SIMPSON v. STATE

1 Div. 936.

151 So.2d 255 (1963)

Sigmon SIMPSON v. STATE.

Court of Appeals of Alabama.


Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

No attorney marked for appellant.

MacDonald Gallion, Atty. Gen., for the State.


CATES, Judge.

The purported final judgment reads:

"Comes the State of Alabama by its Solicitor, comes the defendant also in his own proper person and pleads not guilty to the offense of speeding at night, and on hearing the evidence in this case, the Court is satisfied of the guilt of the defendant and hereby awards the following punishment; A Fine of $25.00 and cost. Defendant gives notice of appeal."

There being no words of adjudication, the rule in Barnemann v. Morrison & Woodward, 132 Ala. 638, 32 So. 649, Moss v. State, 140 Ala. 199, 37 So. 156, Perry v. State, 4 Ala.App. 70, 59 So. 230, and Morris v. State, 29 Ala.App. 396, 196 So. 750, requires that the appeal be

Dismissed.

PRICE, Presiding Judge (dissenting).

I respectfully dissent from the holding of the majority of the court in this case. I am of the opinion the judgment is sufficient to support the appeal and the cause should be affirmed.
