This appeal is taken from the district court's order denying appellant's motion to vacate sentence filed under 28 U.S.C.A. § 2255. Appellant's motion was based upon the claim that the evidence upon which he was convicted was inconsistent with the indictment. The indictment charged that appellant, in the course of a bank robbery, "did put in jeopardy the life of Fred W. Pluskat, by the use of a dangerous weapon, * * *." The evidence showed that it was actually appellant's co-defendant who held Pluskat at gun point.


Assuming that this claim was of a kind that could properly be made in a motion to vacate sentence, it was without merit. As the district court pointed out, a complete answer to the appellant's contention is the law that makes a principal of an aider and abettor. 18 U.S. C.A. § 2.


The order appealed from is affirmed.
