Young Akin Out on Probation.
----------- »a»
Delass Akin, the boy who was charg­
ed with criminal assault upon the
Savage sisters, aged 14 and 18 years,
was put on probation Monday by Judge
Tou Velle, and ordered to report to
the court once each week.
The testimony in the case was ex­
tremely hazy and contradicting. The
younger of the two girls told a different
story in court than the one she told at
first to the officers.
Owing to the character of the testi­
mony Judge Ton Velle concluded to
deal leniently with the boy and so
placed him on pro', .tion.
