In re Charge Against TASALI

No. 15-1912

High Court of American Samoa
Criminal Jurisdiction, Appellate Division

March 16, 1912


W. M. CROSE, Commandant U .S. Naval Station, President of the High Court

In re Matter of Review of Proceedings of District Court No.1.


A new trial is granted in this case, it being believed that the evidence as to the age of the girl Pulea is not conclusive, particularly as the defendant now avers that the testimony of Alesio and Pulea was false, and that through ignorance and lack of experience he failed to produce witnesses or to cross-examine the witnesses of plaintiff.
