Schwartz To Prison

Schwartz, W. B. - 1906-11-27Schwartz to Prison.

William B. Schwartz, the Indianapolis attorney, who was indicted on a charge of coining and passing counterfeit dollars, entered a plea of guilty, and was given a $10 fine and costs, and five years in the United States prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kas., at hard labor. Schwartz pleased his own case, and gave the judge a written appeal for clemency. Judge Anderson was not inclined to show mercy. After Schwartz stated that he had been an attorney for 18 years, the judge replied: “After 19 years as a lawyer you deliberately turned and violated the laws of the country.” He then fixed the sentence.
