Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta TEe Lethbridge Herald VOLUME 3 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, NUMBER 31. HOLMES GETS 5 YEARS ANNEXATION FRENCH JOE, 7 YEARS Judge Scott Sentenced Prisoners to the Penitentiary Tourville Narrowly Escapes Getting the Lash OF STAFFORD VILLAGE Seven years in the penitentiary is the sentence pronounced upon Max- ime Tourville (French Joe) by Mr. Justice Scott this morning in the Su- preme court. Mr. Harris on behalf of the prisoner spoke of the fact that I- Tourville and the woman had been married in Montana several years ago, and have lived together ever since, except when the woman left him occasionally, until a year or so ago when the woman began an open life of shame. He promised to live a better life as soon as liberated and asked for a merciful sentence. The judge said that while the fact that the prisoner had cared for the children in their earlier years, when they were deserted by both parents, was in his favor, he could not overlook the enormity of the crime. Had it not been for this he would have sen- teiiced him to the limit as well as order him whipped but under the cir-j cumstances would omit the whipping, and sentence him to seven years in the penitentiary.
