[397 U.S. 436 , 437] Clark M. Clifford, Washington, D.C., for petitioner.
Gene E. Voigts, Jefferson City, Mo., for respondent.
Mr. Justice STEWART delivered the opinion of the Court.
In Benton v. Maryland, 395 U.S. 784 , the Court held that the Fifth Amendment guarantee against double jeopardy is enforceable against the States through the Fourteenth Amendment. The question in this case is whether the State of Missouri violated that guarantee when it prosecuted the petitioner a second time for armed robbery in the circumstances here presented.
