[irlsotinieut. it is bollcvcri thai lh*t
, i ? in : in' such a hlOUSUrO na this will
to a large extent deter persons from
attempting to commit assault.
Tim' two roconl notable cases have
?an ,.? I many to consider this problem
ind the Introduction of the bill will
loubtlcss -.in nine Interesting
discussion among the members of the
? ? ?
The opinion is quite generally ex
press' l it I ii attempt to ravish Were
tut u the ; ime plane as the ac
? "i Iis! hi nt there would bti fewoi
.- > ??? ; ineiidmeuts to
gr ? importance, which I think
hould ; considered by your honor
i further wish to call your atten
tion to another matter which i eon
' !< ;? of great importance at this par
lar tin ? ir our history, and that
is the oniu tment of a law providing
the death penalty to any male person
making an assault upon a fern
with Intout to ravish, granting the
right to the jury trying the case to
fi>." the punishment in tho State pen
itentiary, if in their judgment the
facts warront a less punishment than
?in this day, when we read oi so
many assaults of this character bolng
i '?' I? hooves us to wake up to
He situation and make the penalty
>? severe thai the women of this
t< may be protected from this belli
oi crime and the perpetrators pun
' 'd o severely thai all will lie de?
i from committing the same'
Si nator Wliarton's bill will make
the attempt to commit the crime prac
I tically the same as the commission
of the act Itself.- it is left to the
Jury to rccoininend tho prisnor to the
mercy of the court should this ho
[deemed wipe, jn that case the pun
Ishineht is to be not less than 10
years, or. of course, (night be lifo im
prisoiiiuont. Whon tho ensf is ab
MOlUtely proved. I'm punishment death.
The Hue of ftrguoiuonl used by i up
porters of the bill is:
1. There should not be anj differ
ence as far as ihe law is concerned
In the actual commission of tie* crime
Very often the fact that the crime i
not committed is not anything 10 ti->
credit of the defendant. Ho mlghi
be seared off. but he had the Original
Intention of continuing the crime.
2, The women of the state mm hi
protected and there Is no bottoi' prd
I tection than deterring. \ lau t<
I make the tv'hne attempted ill the !"? I
' way. h Is argued, to keep per ;>;>?
from attempting to commit llio crln?
and as a natural conclusion, the num
ber of cares where tho COllllhisHlol
of the crime is accomplished wouh
be l. isened considerably.
:. Vi'.'v often a jury on ;. en
ihr ovldonc< being not so conclusive
I ha? to lol ? man go free, but tf tho
new bill should do just as much with
lone who attempted tho crime as if he
had committed tho crime.
