TENTH CASE Mr. Allen Meeks, the second time.
At the January term in 1886, Mr. Meeks was indicted the second time. July 13, he was arrested on a bench warrant in the hands of William La Fever. Meeks gave bonds for his appearance at the July term of Court. The offense was for fixing his wagon-brake on Sunday. He was reported to the Grand Jury by Riley Warren. Warren had gone to Meeks’s house on the Sunday referred to in the indictment, to see Mr. Meeks about hiring a teacher for their public school, for both of them were members of the school board of their district. In the course of their conversation, Mr. Meeks incidentally mentioned having mended his wagon-brake that morning. This was reported to the Grand Jury by Mr. Warren, and the indictment followed.CGRSL 128.2
At the July term, this, with other cases mentioned, was held over to await the decision of the Supreme Court in the Scoles case.CGRSL 129.1
At the January term in 1887, Meeks’s case was called. He confessed judgment; the usual fine and costs were assessed, confessed by Meeks, and he was released.CGRSL 129.2
