State v. Blendt

In State v. Blendt, 49 Del. 528, 120 A.2d 321 (Super.Ct. 1956) the Superior Court found that when "the offense charged is so well identified, it is inconceivable that the erroneous date exposes the defendant to double jeopardy." The Court reasoned that despite the one year difference in the date specified in the Indictment and the actual occurrence of the crime, the Indictment was sufficiently certain and definite to enable the defendant to plead a judgment in the case to bar double jeopardy.
