JONES v. THE STATE.
67206.
BANKE, Judge.
Burglary. Fulton Superior Court. Before Judge Cooper.
Johnny Jones appeals his conviction of two charges of burglary. The two offenses were committed two months apart, both occurred in the morning, and both included single unit residences located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, about four miles apart. Entrance to one dwelling was gained by breaking out a ground-floor window; entrance to the second was gained by breaking the windows of both an outside and inside door. In each instance, the property taken was jewelry. Held:
2. Appellant further contends that a statement made by the Prosecuting attorney during closing argument to the effect that the state's evidence had not been rebutted constituted an improper reference to his failure to testify. It is well established that the Prosecuting attorney may argue that the state's evidence is uncontradicted, unrefuted, or unrebutted. See generally Smith v State, 245 Ga. 205 (264 SE2d 15) (1980); Burgess v. State, 158 Ga. App. 593 (281 SE2d 337) (1981); Hampton v. State, 158 Ga. App. 324 (6) (280 SE2d 158) (1981). This enumeration of error is accordingly without merit.
Lewis R. Slaton, District Attorney, Joseph J. Drolet, Wallace Speed, Assistant District Attorneys, for appellee.
Earl A. Davidson, for appellant.
DECIDED OCTOBER 27, 1983.
