Police Court - A well-deserved sentence. - 1893

Loughborough Herald - 11th May 1893

William Thompson, alias George Redfern, collier, no fixed abode, was charged on remand with obtaining 5s by false pretences, from Captain Warner, Quorn Hall, on the 5th instant. – Mr H Rednall, valet to Captain Warner, repeated his evidence, to the effect that the prisoner called at the hall on Friday with the book produced, and appealed for assistance on behalf of miners thrown out of work through an explosion at Bedworth Colliery. The accused, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to 28 days’ hard labour, the Chairman remarking that through his action he had probably prevented the charitable from giving to those who were really deserving and in want – From the book it appeared that the prisoner had obtained sums from a number of the gentry of the town and neighbourhood.
