MOTHER'S TEARS FREE SON
Man Sentenced to Serve" Tear Is
Paroled by Judge Gatens.
Because his mother begged Judge
Gatens, with tears streaming down her
cheeks, to give her boy another chance,
Earl Rockford, under indictment on a
statutory charge, was sentenced yes
terday, to serve a year In the Peniten
tiary and was paroled Immediately.
Judge Gatens told the prisoner, after
his plea had been changed from not
guilty to guilty, that only his mother's
love and devotion had prevented the
actual execution of the sentence.
While serving time at the rockpile
a few months ago Rockford accidental
ly got Into communication with Mrs.
Will Edna Suess over the telephone
and a flirtation ensued. After his re
lease they eloped to Pendleton, where
they had a marriage ceremony per
formed. When they came back to Port
land Rockford was arrested for drunk
enness and his association with Mrs.
Suess was revealed. Both were in
dicted on a statutory charge and Mrs.
Suess' husband obtained a divorce.
The woman has yet to come to trial
for her share in the alleged offense.
As yet no attempt has been made to
have her Indicted for bigamy and the
probabilities are that she will not be
required to face that charge.
