ever, declared the girl was good
until she fell under the influence
of Friedman. They were able to
support her, but she worked at
the Boston store toearn spending1
money. She lived at home, and
was happy.
"This is one of the most brazen
cases of depravity that has ever
come before me," said Judge
Dicker in oassiner sentence..
These human parasites, worse
than beasts, deserve no mercy
The punishment will be the limit,
and my only regret Is that it can
not be made heavier."
Rose will be returned to her
parents, 1244 Sawyer ave. She
wants to begin life all over.
