The appeal by Karp in the St. Louis court was based on the fact the convicted man did not get to examine a statement by an FBI agent called into the case. The court denied the appeal on the basis that the matter was a "harmless error" and not prejudicial to the outcome of the case. Karp, who has been in prison since his conviction, held up two bank employees at gunpoint shortly after the bank opened for business and ran out of the biuld- ing to his car. He was ap- prchended several days later at Kalispell, Montana, and returned to Fort Dodge for trial.
