Orsello reported he found Crowl has "a . rebellious attitude towards society." He said he learned that during a short period of feelings about the case, discussed juvenile court procedures and juvenile delinquency for some 30 minutes. The courtroom was filled to capacity. In discussing the fact that many time when Crowl had been in the juvenile cases are tried in secrecy, : State Orphans Home he had been I Loble said: "I'm not in agreement with the law that says It should be secret. My experience has been 'that trials in secrecy have no value, no effect on the parents who are often to blame." . · ^ He said that boys and girls often take advantage of the fact there is no publicity given to. juvenile court proceedings. . In discussing the case ai hand, Loble asked parents .of Crowl to stand up. He described them for the court as "among the finest men and women I know." He told of the many efforts on the part of the boy's parents to help him become a more useful member of society. Then addressing his remarks to the young defendants, he said their crime was "one of the most shocking things I have ever heard of." "You smeared Helena, you smeared Montana,. you smeared the school and the hundreds of good kids there are. "What you did is a matter for your own conscience, if you have any," he said. The judge instructed Harrison to dismiss District Court charges against all other members of the juvenile "bum rumbling" gang where the boys are under 18 years of age and refile these cases in juvenile court. Then he warned delinquent parents they will face prosecution if they allow their children to run wild. He pointed out that a little used section of the law s . provides punishment in such cases of up to $1,000 in fine and nine months in jail. "It's about time some of these parents were moved up to the front row," the judge said.
