The defendant seeks to contend that the evidence offered, after plea, to acquaint the court with the nature of the offense fails to establish any crime, and therefore he ought to be discharged. The position is untenable. The guilt of the accused was not at issue, and the solicitor was not undertaking to make out a case. The defend*581ant’s plea relieved the prosecution of this burden. S. v. Burnett, 174 N. C., 796, 93 S. E., 473.
Similar questions are being resolved against tbe defendants in S. v. Beasley, ante, 577, and S. v. Ayers, ante, 579, herewith decided. Hence, the subject judgment will be affirmed on authority of these cases.
