Justice Judson was acting for Governor-General Roland Michener at Government House in Ottawa. Man spends day in jail without plea or trial EDMONTON (CP) The at- torney-general's department says it is studying the case of an Edmonton man who spent a day in jail last week after being sentenced on a charge he nei- ther pleaded guilty to, or was tried for. Milan Modrovcic, 28, had been charged with the theft of a toy from a city store and was sen- tenced July 20 by Judge Lucien Maynard of provincial court to one week in jail. The next day, when a proce- dural error was brought to the judge's attention, the man was freed. Richard Anthony, chief Crown prosecutor, said Tuesday the at- torney-general's department is taking steps to have Modrov- cic's conviction quashed. The case opened June 8 when Modrovcic's wife, Melica, jointly charged with her hus- band with Uieft under ap- peared before Judge Maynard with an interpreter. The charge against her was withdrawn but she was allowed to plead guilty to the charge against her husband on his be- half. Modrovcic's counsel told court at a later hearing that theft under is an indictable of- fence, under the jurisdiction of the provincial court and that no one is permitted to plead to an indictable offense on another's behalf. At the original hearing, Judge Maynard remanded Modrovcic, who was out of the country, to sentencing on June'29 and or- dered a pre-sentence report.

At one point, the clerk told Judge Maynard that Mcdrov- cic's charge sheet, on which a record of court appearances and pleas is kept, was not in court. That is fine, I don't need the judge said. "The accused is before me for sentencing." Modrovcic's counsel told court his client never appeared before Judge Maynard. The judge replied: "Well, somebody appeared on his behalf and it was a sum- mary conviction offence. I will give him the opportunity of changing his plea at a higher court. 'I am not going to be fooled around with in this court." He sentenced Modrovcic to one week "in Fort Saskatche- wan (correctional institute) so that you can have the opportu- nity (of) filing an appeal and change your plea to one of not guilty." The next day, Mr. Anthony appeared before Judge May- nard and submitted that as the plea had been made by an agent, the court did not have ju- risdiction. Judge Maynard struck the guilty plea. The case resumed Monday be- fore Judge John Coughlan who struck Modrovcic's name from the docket, stating that Judge Maynard had exceeded his ju- risdiction.

Mr. Dodds said that until preliminary negotiations are complete the interest rate and terms of the loan will not be known. education programs will be doubled Aug. 1.
