The "prophylactic" due process limitations established by North Carolina v. Pearce, 395 U. S. 711, 395 U. S. 723-726, to guard against the possibility of vindictiveness in case where a judge imposes a more severe sentence upon defendant after a new trial, are not retroactively applicable to resentencing proceedings that, like the one involved in this case, occurred prior to the date of the Pearce decision.
