Speeder Jailed by Judge Davis
San Bruno, July 23 – “Justice is sometimes cruel!”” tearfully exclaimed the 18-year-old bride of Edward Levene of San Francisco, as Judge John F. Davis of the first township, sentenced her husband to serve five days in the county jail, with an alternative of paying a fine of $50 on the charge of automobile speeding.
The offender was originally arrested several weeks ago for speeding and failed to appear in court when his case was called. Judge Davis issued a bench warrant for him. Realizing the seriousness of failure to appear in court as at first directed, Levene motored down to the courtroom with his girl wife. Mrs. Levene, in the role of Portia, pleaded that the case be dropped.
Levene was taken to jail, as he did not have the requisite cash. Subsequently the fine was paid.
