LITTLE v. THE STATE.
50975.
BELL, Chief Judge.
Burglary. Cherokee Superior Court. Before Judge Pope.
The defendant appeals from his conviction for burglary. Held:
1. A witness for the state identified the defendant from a pre-trial photographic lineup of 12 photographs as the person from whom he purchased items stolen from the premises burglarized. Each individual picture had an identifying number. The photographs were admitted over the objection that it erroneously placed the defendant's character in issue. The argument is made that the identifying number around the defendant's neck would indicate the defendant had been in custody previously. No error was committed. The picture of defendant with an identifying number does not indicate that the defendant was guilty of any previous crime and does not place his character in issue. Creamer v. State, 229 Ga. 704 (194 SE2d 73).
3. The evidence authorized the conviction.
C. B. Holcomb, District Attorney, Frank C. Mills, III, for appellee.
William G. Hasty, Jr., for appellant.
SUBMITTED SEPTEMBER 15, 1975 -- DECIDED SEPTEMBER 22, 1975.
