No. 18816.

351 P.2d 389 (1960)

John M. SCHOOLEY, Manager of Safety and Excise and Ex-Officio Sheriff of the City and County of Denver; and Arthur S. Reeder, Warden of the County Jail of the City and County of Denver, Plaintiffs in Error, v. Vanden Mural CAIN, Defendant in Error.

Supreme Court of Colorado. En Banc.

April 25, 1960.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

John C. Banks, City Atty., W. Keith Peterson, Asst. City Atty., Denver, for plaintiffs in error.

Stanley B. Bender, S. Morris Lubow, Denver, for defendant in error.

FRANTZ, Justice.

Cain obtained an order for his discharge in habeas corpus proceedings, and the plaintiffs in error (referred to for brevity as Denver) seek reversal by writ of error. In oral argument here the parties agreed that only one question was to be resolved, and that is, whether the Municipal Court has the power to impose consecutive sentences for ordinance violations involving three separate and distinct transactions provable by different evidence.
