£4 FOR BAD LANGUAGE

Frank Jarvis, labourer, Saffron Walden, did not appear in answer to a summons for using indecent language, at Saffron Walden, on June 11th

P.C. Lomax stated that at 9.55 p.m. on the day in question he saw defendant at Cates-corner, at the bottom of Common-hill, and spoke to defendant about it, and he moved on in the direction of the Police Station. When defendant got to the Police Station wall he attempted to commit a nuisance, but witness prevented him. He then went over the road to a by-road for the same purpose. There were several people about.

A record of previous convictions was put in by the police.

The Mayor said that the Bench took a more serious view of the case than defendant did, and he would be fined £4.
