MONTFORD v. THE STATE.
56672.
SMITH, Judge.
Armed robbery. Johnson Superior Court. Before Judge Towson.
We affirm Montford's conviction of armed robbery.
1. The appellant raised no objection below as to the completeness of the transcript, and his objection on appeal thus raised nothing for review. Ga. L. 1965, pp. 18, 24 (Code Ann. 6-805 (f)); Patterson v. State, 233 Ga. 724 (7) (213 SE2d 612) (1975).
2. Appellant asserts reversible error in the court reporter's failure to transcribe the oath given the jury, which failure renders it impossible to ascertain that the oath was properly administered. We disagree with that assertion. "[T]he appellant's remedy was to have the record corrected by following the provisions of Code Ann. 6-805 (f)." Dalton v. State, 127 Ga. App. 504 (194 SE2d 268) (1972). See Division 1, supra.
3. Appellant contends, citing Peavy v. Clemons, 10 Ga. App. 507 (73 SE 756) (1911), as support, that the trial court erred in charging that a verdict of guilty "must be a unanimous verdict." We find no error. The court gave the charge at the close of the evidence and before the jury retired to deliberate. Peavy, supra, is inapposite, as it involved a charge given a jury which had deliberated for some time and reached a 10-2 deadlock, the court there having erroneously recharged in a manner tending "to discourage the two jurors in adhering to their view." Peavy, supra, at (3).
Beverly B. Hayes, District Attorney, James Stanley Smith, Jr., Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
Charles Thornton, for appellant.
SUBMITTED OCTOBER 3, 1978 -- DECIDED NOVEMBER 16, 1978 -- REHEARING DENIED DECEMBER 5, 1978 -- CERT. APPLIED FOR.
