A Definition of Casual Violations
A republican president, a republican secretary of
the treasury and a republican attorney general united
in an imjiortant charge proposed in the laws relat
ing to federal pro enforcement This is the recom
mendation :
“Enlargement of the powers of United States
commissioners so they may try 'casual and slight
offender*’ against the prohibition laws.
They had their definition ready. They asked the
federal lawmakers to fix the penalty for casual and
slight violations at a fine of not more than $500 and
imprisonment of not more tlian six months in jail, or
both, with authority for district attorneys to try ac
cused In such cases by complaint or information—
and not by indictment."
If the casual violations recommendation is en
acted it would give federal commissioners the right
to try small offenders—and it would take away the
constitutional right of trial by jury- This is what
the recommendation made by Pres. Hoover with he
endorsement of Sec. MeUin and Atty, Gen. Mitchell
asks the congress to write into the prohibition stat
utes of the republic: “To fix the penalty at a fine
of not more than $500 and imprisonment of not more
♦han six months in jail.' or both. ’
Under the FI*1*1 Amendment no one shall be held
to answer for a capital or other “infamous crime. ’
unless on a presentment or Indictment of a grand
Jury. __
As construed by the supreme court or tne tinned
States. "Infamous crime” means one punishable by
imprisonment in a penitentiary or for more than one
year, or for any period, if at hard labor
Hence, according to the Wicker.sham commission,
"where imprisonment Is to be in jail, is not to ex
ceed six months and is .not to be at hatd labor, the
crime is not infamous It is only where there is a
possibility of imprisonment in the ptn.'f ntiary. or
for more than a year, or at hard labor tha an in
dictment is requued.”
In Texas all persons convicted under the pro
visions of tire Dean law are guilty of ' infamous
rritrtes” If arraigned in a federal court md found
guilty as charged and given a fine or jail sentence,
they are wholly innocent of the perpetration of an
infamous crime.
This is a funny old world and the legal distinctions
are as queer as the lawmakers responsible for them
There would be a uniformity of laws to say the
least. There is no fine or jail sentence to be found
in the Dean act. There is no suspended sentence
above a certain age for the casual violator.
He goes over the road to the penitentiary for one
to five years. This is the reason why the country
bovs go to the penitentiary and the city boys are
given fines or jail sentences. If it isn’t a mockerv of
Justice then name it and take it.
