Kenneth E. Steinfield, Assistant District Attorney, for the Commonwealth.
HANLON, J. The defendant appeals from his
conviction after a jury trial of three charges of fraudulent use of a credit card, G. L. c. 266, § 37C, and three charges of larceny of property having a value of less than $250, G. L. c. 266, § 30.(1) He
argues, as to the fraudulent use of a credit card charges, that the indictments were defective; that there was insufficient evidence to sustain his
conviction for those offenses; and that the jury were not properly instructed on them.
also argues that certain bad act evidence was wrongly admitted; that he
was prejudiced when the judge showed bias in his
treatment of a Commonwealth
witness; and that, as to one of the transactions using a stolen credit card, he
was indicted for offenses different than those proved at trial.
