Bertha Green adultery case - Arrested Constable Winters. Constable James...
Arrested Constable Winters. Constable James Winters, of the Seventh ward, was arrested to-dav to-dav to-dav on a charge of subornation of perjury on oath of John T.. Jackson, a colored barber, doing business business at Second and Mulberry streets, and Mrs. Bertha Green, a white woman, who were recently arrested by Winters and taken before Alderman Hall on a charge of adultery. Their case has been returned to court. They now claim that Constable Winters paid witnesses to swear to certain facts which were brought out in this adultery case and also that he paid the witnesses to appear against them. The case, they allege, was worked up by Mr. Winters.
