Court Works by ‘Phone
A plea of guilty by telephone and the assessment of a fine by a justice, also over the ‘phone, are reported from Logan County, Ill. Robert Williard was served with a warrant by Constable Pettit. Willard was anxious to avoid leaving his farm work, now at its height, and persuaded the constable to notify the justice that he was guilty. He asked the amount of the fine, and when told that it was $14, at once sent that amount to the justice by mail.
