On Way To Prison

Schwartz, W. B. - 1906-12-13
ON WAY TO PRISON

GROUP OF CONVICTED MEN STARTED WESTWARD IN MARSHAL’S CHARGE

Eight men sentenced to terms in the United States prison at the last term of the federal court started for that institution at Fort Leavenworth, Kas., Thursday, in charge of United States Marshal H. C. Pettit and Duputies Dave Rankin and Tom Martin, leaving the city at 11:45. The prisoners are William Schwartz, the Indianapolis attorney, sentenced for four years for counterfeiting; John row, one year for making false affidavit as to pension papers; Theodore Linninger, three years, for passing counterfeit coins; Theodore Englebert, of Richmond, one year for taking money from a letter, as an employee of the postoffice; Judson Sturtevant, three years for robbing a postoffice; Alexander Rusilla, one year for counterfeiting; Napoleon B. Livingston, one year for impersonating a government pension officer; Clarence Robertson, one year for forging a money order.

Mrs. Gustave A. Consman, of Terre Haute, true to her husband, who is serving a term in prison for embezzlement, called at the marshal’s office before the officers departed with the prisoners, and entrusted to them a package intended to make her husband’s Christmas brighter.
