ACQUITTAL SEEN FOR CULLINANE AS CASE NEARS AN END
DEFENSE PILES
UP CHARACTER
TESTIMONY

expected to deny the charge that
Cullinane on Christrrtas Day beat
Wilbur A. Hoffman. 614 Massa
chusetts Ave. N. W.. a prisoner
at the precinct, while transfer
ring him from one cell to an
other.
Hoffman’s failure to identify
Cullinane as his assailant was
pointed to today as the strongest
point in the policeman’s favor,
together with the fact that the
two most important Government
witnesses, although allowed to
testify, were jailed for contempt
of court.
Hoffman proved a reluctant
Witness yesterday when the Gov
ernment’s case was presented. He
said he was so drunk at the time
of the alleged assault he could
not say whether the two teeth
were knocked out by the police
man or whether he stumbled
against the side of the cell.
Cell Mates Jailed
The highlight of yesterday’s
session came with the sentencing
the two prosecution witnesses to
jail for 48 hours for contempt of
court.

County Bar Association, has
called a special meeting Tues
