THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11 1911
Miscreant Pleads Guilty and Gets Light
One of tho worst cases of assault
ami battery which has ever been
brought to the attention of tho local
police, was reported from Uiupala
kua last week.
A native by the name of George
Auaekoolani had been deserted by
his inamorata, but she had left be
hind her little girl, aged nine years.
The woman had promised to return,
and in tho meantime for some un
accountable reason tho brute vented
his anger on the little one in the
most brutal manner.
When found by the Sheriff the
girl was chained up and in such a
state of abject fear that she was un
able to answer or express herself
intelligently. The back of the little
girl was a mass of bruises and cuts,
and there were several cuts on the
back of her head. The sheriff had
the girl removed to the Malulani
hospital for medical, treatment and
placed Auaekoolani under arrest.
Auaekoolani was brought before
Judge McKay Thursday morning,
and pleaded guilty. Ho acknowl
edge he had beaten and kicked the
child, but that she had made him
angry by running away.
An ordinary assault and battery
case can lo adequately putiishud by
a fine, but in this case there seems
to be no suitable punishment, as it
is so seldom anything of the kind
comes before tho local courts.
Judge McKay let the prisoner off
with a fine of $15, which can be no
possible punishment, ad qu.ile to

but there can be no possible mitiga
