#TBT Murder Case Before Court — 2 Comments

  1. Those are some interesting charges. I like the “gold reserve act transgression”. Wonder what that’s about!! But the 21 land condemnations sounds like a company or the government was trying to acquire properties for their use. But since was 1938 I wonder if that was the way to do foreclosures back then. Interesting…

    • Denise, I had to look it up. The Gold Reserve Act (1934) forced individuals to sell their gold to the federal treasury – which is where the gold in Ft. Knox came from – and made it a criminal offense to privately own any gold. Something about bolstering the U.S. economy, maybe?

      I’m just trying to think of how long it’s been since there was only one violation of the narcotic act on the books at any given time!
