Jerome v. U.S

Petitioner was indicted under Section 2 (a) of the Bank Robbery Act for entering a national bank in Vermont with intent to utter a forged promissory note and thereby to defraud the bank. He was convicted after the trial before a jury was sentenced to imprisonment for one year and a day. The utterance of a promissory note is a felony under the laws of Vermont. The circuit Court of Appeal affirmed the conviction by a divided vote, holding that “felony” as used in S.2 (a) includes offences which are felonies under state law.
