Judge lenient in sentencing men

Emery Bruno of Johnsburgh, who pled Guilty to Grand Larceny, was at first sentenced to Dannemora State Prison, but the judge was lenient and later suspended his sentence.

Danny Jackson, of Warrensburgh, pled Guilty in Warren County court to a charge of horse stealing. A plea for clemency was made by his attorney, J. Edward Singleton, who asked Judge Lyman Jenkins for mercy on the grounds that the prisoner is the only support of his aged mother. Jackson received an indeterminate sentence in the reformatory at Elmira.
