George Haikes, of this city, who was
convicted of criminal assault upon little
Carrie Ilimmerly in the circuit court at
Dayenport a few wetks ago, was sen
tenced to fiye years in the penitentiary by
Judge Waterman Thursday afternoon'.
The motion for a new trial was first
argued and overruled. The Democrat
It was about half past 1 o'clock when
Judge Waterman asked Haikes if be bad
anything to say why sentence hboulrj not
be pronounced upon him, and then the
prisoner arose, looking pale and fearful
of what might be expected. He said
that he had nothing to say only that he
The judge, after a few brief r marks in
regard io the crime, sentenced Haikes to
rive years at hard labor in ihe peniten
tiary at Anamosa. The prisoner broke
down. Five years was hard to think o,
ami that, too, at hard ltbor He wept
like a child, and it was with the greatest
difficulty that he was able to walk un
assisted back to the j til.
Ic is ths intention of bis attorneys to
appeil the m"-e to tbe supreme court.
There were 2V reasons given in the mo
tion for a new triil. Among these was
that the court erred in failing to instruct
the J.iry that tbe crime as alleged in the
indictment, and under the vidence in
the case, necessarily inc'tided th crimes
of assault with intent to commit rape,
assault ant battery and simple assault,
and that if there was a reasonable doubt
of dt fendant's guilt of any of the higher
offenses or higher degrees of the same
offense, they should then consider the
next lower degree.
Tne defense alsn claims that tbe evi
dence failed to identify tbe defendant as
the Haikes who was with the prosecutirg
witness at the time of tbe alleged ( flense.
And that during the openine argument
of A P. McGuirk for the state, which
occupied nearly two hours, it is claimed
that Judge Waterman was absent from
tbe court room and our. of sight and
hearing of tbe proceedings in the trial
during such absence of the judge certain
disru'es arose between the counsel for
the d fendant and for the state regarding
a line of argument pursued by A. P. Mc
Guirk in which tbe latter cited a similar
case in Dis Moines, and told the iury
what, punishment the court it rlicted upon
the defendant in that case.
