MAY GET OFFICER WALSH ON
- CONTEMPT CHARGE
Refusal to pay attention to stop
order issued by Judge Harry N. Fish
er of court of domestic relations and
arresting of James Crocker after he
had been released on bail may result
in Officer John T. Walsh being found
guilty of contempt of court
Warrant was issued for Crocker
on July 9, charging wife abandon
ment When Crocker learned of it
he appeared in court with his attor
ney and gave bail to appear July 16.
Judge Fisher thereupon entered stop
order against the warrant that had
not yet been served, Instructing any
police officer that Crocker was not to
be taken into custody.
In a petition to file contempt pro
ceedings, H. R. Porter, attorney for
Crocker, declares that Walsh ap
peared at 1731 Plymouth pi., where
Crocker works, on the afternoon of
the 14th and was informed stop order
had been issued. He said he would
be" back the next morning and take
Crocker anyway. On July 15 at 8:39
he went again to the shop and,
though the stop order was read to
him, he forced Crocker to go to the
Harrison police station with him and
is alleged to have said he didn't care
a d for the stop order. Crocker
was kept in Jail until afternoon and
released by order of Judge Robinson.
Ass't State's Att'y Arkins will investigate.
