Page 26 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, March 27, 1988 Nation Report Student Who Threatened Puppy Arrested MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A student who had threatened to burn a puppy to draw attention to U.S. policy in Centra) America pleaded innocent Friday to carrying a knife. David Read, 26, was released on his signature after arraignment on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, said Dane County Deputy District Attorney Steve Tinker. Police who arrested Read on Thursday on a warrant issued in July for non-payment of a fine found a seven-inch dagger in his pocket, Officer Maryanne Thurber said. "He said he was afraid for his safety," she said. Earlier this week, enraged people across the nation had called humane societies, radio stations and police to denounce the University of Wisconsin-Madison student's announced plans to burn a puppy to demonstrate the brutality of war. The warrant was issued after Read failed to pay a fine from a 1985 disorderly conduct charge, said Jeanine Hayes, a Sheriff's Department clerk. Officers knew Read because of attention resulting from the puppy threat, Thurber said. Man Sentenced To 3 Days In Hat Incident FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -State District Judge Don Leonard says he understands a man's fondness for his cowboy hat, but don't try wearing one in his court. "The judge asked if I would remove it and said he could give me six months or a $5,000 fine," said Keven Beaird. "I told him I wouldn't, his gavel fell, and it was 10 days in the county jail." Leonard sentenced the General Dynamics toolmaker for contempt of court Monday for refusing to take off his hat in a jury assembly room. The judge released him three days later after Beaird apologized. "He said he was sorry, that he knew he had to follow the rules of the court," Leonard said Friday. "I told him I admired his belief, but to save himself for the big battles of life." District Judge Joe Drago said he supports Leonard's decision. "I've never heard of specifically a hat. But I've asked people to take off hats before, and no one has ever refused," Drago said. "He must like his hat." "1 don't iike anybody to tell me to take my hat off," Beaird said. "I just won't do it, but I guess if I go to court again ... well, I believe I would take it off." LINCOLN AUCTION GALLERY Every Friday Evening Consignments wanted-bring most everything.

AARON and TIM COWELL 219-722-1771 Guilty Plea Entered In 'Preppie' Case NEW YORK (AP) - Robert Chambers pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter Friday for strangling a young woman during sex in Central Park, halting jury deliberations in the "preppie murder" case after nine days. State Supreme Court Justice Howard E. Bell asked Chambers whether he intended to cause "serious injury" to 18-year-old Jennifer Levin "and thereby cause her death." State law defines first-degree manslaughter as causing a death while intending to cause serious injury. "Looking back on everything, I have to say yes," Chambers, 21, said. "It breaks my heart to have to say that." At that, prosecutor Linda Fairstein shot up and said loudly, "We're asking about his mind and his hands, not his heart." The judge repeated the question, andChambers.replied, "Yes." Chambers' mother, Phyllis Chambers, stared straight ahead, showing no emotion. His father, Robert, also sat silently. Miss Levin's death in the summer of 1986 focused attention on the lives of wealthy young New Yorkers. It also drew protests from feminists, who argued that Chambers' defense was an example of blaming women for male violence. Chambers had maintained that he never intended to hurt Miss Levin, whom he had dated before, and killed her accidentally with a swipe of his arm when she hurt him during rough sex. The sexual encounter was not their first. Chambers originally was charged with second-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison. Under a plea bargain, he wiJJ be sentenced to five to 15 years. He could have received up to eight and one-third to 25 years on the charge. Sentencing was set for April 15. The plea bargain, reached after two days of negotiations, Robert Chambers and his mother, Phyllis came as the jury was in its ninth day of. deliberations. Chambers' trial began with jury selection Oct. 21. Opening arguments started Jan. 4. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said that the prospect of a possible mistrial, the strain on the Levin family and the circumstantial nature of the evidence prompted the plea bargain. Judicial Candidate Found Shot Dead WAKULLA, N.C. (AP) - A Lumbee Indian activist who was a candidate for Superior Court judge in his racially troubled county was found shot to death Saturday at his home, the FBI said. Julian T. Pierce was killed sometime Friday night or early Saturday, said special agent Paul Daly, calling him the victim of an apparent burglary. The Red Springs Police Department received a call about the death Saturday morning, said Chief Deputy Al Parnell of the Robeson County sheriff's department. Daly said agents from the FBI and the State Bureau of Investigation were assisting county investigators. "We will look into it from the aspect that it could be a potential civil rights violation," said Daly, in charge of FBI operations in North Carolina. Pierce, 42, was a candidate for a newly created Superior Court judgeship. He was running against District Attorney Joe Freeman Britt in the May 3 Democratic primary. "We don't have any motive," Pierce said Robert Morgan, director of the State Bureau of Investigation. He refused to say how many times Pierce had been shot or where the body was found. "It is a case of some note, and we shouldn't leave any stone unturned," he added. Authorities received the first word of the death from "a friend" of Pierce, said Morgan, who would not identify the caller. It appeared the home had been forcibly entered, but Morgan said he didn't know if anything had been taken from the house. At mid-afternoon, the body was still in the house, in a rural area about 15 miles from Lumberton, as forensic experts combed the scene. Robeson County, bordering South Carolina in the southeast corner of North Carolina, is the home of The Robesonian newspaper, where two Lumbee Indians were charged with holding the staff hostage Feb. 1. The men charged with hostage-taking, Eddie Hatcher and Tim Jacobs, said they wanted to call attention to racial injustice and corruption in the county. A letter written by Hatcher before the hostage incident criticized The Robesonian's coverage of Pierce's announcement for the judgeship. The letter, which was published in the weekly Carolina Indian Voice newspaper in January, said Pierce's story didn't receive as prominent display as did Britt's announcement. But Robesonian Editor Bob Home said both candidates received front-page display with a photograph. Robeson County's population is 157 percent white, 37 percent Indian and 26 percent black. Blacks and Indians long have alleged racism and corruption in the local criminal justice system. Britt, who is known for the number of death-penalty verdicts he has won, has been a frequent target of the complaints. A crowd of about GO people, mostly Lumbee Indians, stood outside Pierce's one-story brick ranch house Saturday afternoon. Many said they believed the slaying was politically motivated and that they didn't have much faith that the sheriff's department would investigate the killing adequately. Morgan said, "I'm sure that there are those who share that feeling, but if they don't trust the county, the SBI and the FBI, I don't know who else we can turn to."
