Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...was illegal. City of Chicago, Defendant in Error, v. Charles Baker, Plaintiii' in Error. Gen. No. 21,568. (Not to be reported in full.) Error to the Municipal Court of Chicago; the Hon. WILLIAM N. GEMMILL, Judge, presiding. Heard in the Branch Appellate Court at the October term, 1915. Reversed and remanded. Opinion filed April 28, 1916. Statement of the Case. Complaint by City of Chicago, plaintiff, against Charles Baker, defendant, charging that he Was " known to be a pickpocket and was found lounging in and prowling and loitering about a car and public place, and was unable to give a reasonable excuse for being so found in violation of section 2012 of the Chicago Code of 1911." To reverse a judgment finding him guilty and imposing a fine, defendant prosecutes this writ of error. The only witness called to support the charge was the officer who arrested Baker and his companion, one Albert Johnson, while they were in a passenger car of one of the elevated street railroads of Chicago. The substance of his testimony was that he saw them board the car with other passengers at one station and that he took them ofl at another simply because he knew them to be pickpockets. He admitted that he did not see them do anything except to take a seat in the car on each side of another passenger. He said he had their "records," and thereupon the prosecutor handed up to the judge a paper which the judge read, purporting to contain information of several arrests of said Baker for various ofl'enses and of the result of the proceedings thereon in different jurisdictions, the introduction of which was objected to. CHARLES E. ERBSTEIN and CHARLES P. R. 1/IAGAULAY, for plaintiff in error. SAMUEL A. ETTELSON and HARRY more
