EVIDENCE HOT SUFFICIENT
IN SUCKER OUSE
(Continued Prom Pa^e On*'
beyond a reasonable doubt; brat, that
a crime has been committed ; second,
that the accused person committed tne
crime. ,
Admission Not Enough.
-Now, this always has been the law,
that you cannot show that a crime has
been oommitted by the mere admission
of the charge. If a man were to come
up tomorrow and say that 'out In the
mountains I killed John Jones, felon
iously. with malice aforethought and
premedltatedly.' he cannot be put on
trial and convicted of the murder of
Johr Jonee by that admlesion: be
cause, first, the government must prove
that a crime was committed, and they
would have to find the body of John
Jones and prove that he waa killed
feloniously. If they did that, then
there would be sal iafac tory evidence
;
i
;
I
that a aime had been committed, and
; the admission of the man that did the
i killing woald be competent evidence
; upon which a Jury might find him
guiuy.
"Now. In this case: The government
I must prove that the man failed to
register. That is the crime here. If
any crime is committed, failure to
register. They esumot prove that by
bis admission. If they would bring in
the record* and have the teettanony of
someone who had examined the rec
ords. and that coaid be done without
any great difficulty, and any that this
man's name did not appear on those
records that would be proof that he
had failed to register. That would be
e crime. Along with that, they could
use his admission that he did not
register, and under those circum
stances, If otherwise sufficient, they
could ose his admissions as to his age.
Dp to OoDgnu.
"But the? bave not done that.
Congress could have seid that if a
man cannot show his registration card
it win he prsenmed that he has not
registered and no shift the harden of
proof to him that he had registered.
But congress has not done that.
These rules are not to protect the
guilty persons, but to protect the in
nocente and the experience of a thou
sand years of English law has shown
those rules to be necessary and they
cannot be invoked as against one per
son any more than against another.
So the court will grant the motion, and
a verdict of not guilty will be entered."
