G?)-Municipal Judge Sylvain Lazarus announced Tuesday he had decided to issue Mayhem warrants against three persons accused by Miss Ann Cooper Hewitt of duping her into a sterilization operation. A legal point raised by attorneys blocked immediate issuance of the warrants, prepared by Assistant District Attorney August Fourtner and naming Miss Hewitt's mother, Mrs. Maryon Cooper McCarter, and Drs. T. E. Tillman and Samuel G. Boyd. "I had made up my mind when I came into court to issue warrants against certain of the accused," Judge Lazarus announced. Declares Law Forbids. I. M. Golden, former superior court judge and attorney for Dr. Tillman, immediately raised the point that the procedure was not allowable because the legislature had amended section 811 of the penal code. Golden declared the section allows persons to plead guilty to a felony before a superior judge with- i out a preliminary hearing. He said | the person accused might go before the court and upon reading of the complaint enter a plea. The word "information" in the section, Golden said, had been changed to "complaint.'' Judge Lazarus immediately asked Fourtner to answer the point, but the assistant district attorney was unable to do so at once. Calls Her Feebleminded. Affidavits from the two physicians and Mrs. Harriett Easton, Los Angeles, Miss Hewitt's aunt, were filed. Dr. Tillman's affidavit declared he had made an examination of Miss Hewitt before the operation was performed. He stated he found her "feebleminded, continuously unreliable, easily influenced, untruthful and dangerously over-sexed." Miss Cooper recently sued her mother for $500,000 damages, naming the physicians and charging she was duped into a sterilization so Mrs. McCarter allegedly could benefit from a trust fund established by her father, Peter Cooper Hewitt, electrical inventor. Judge Lazarus continued the case until next Tuesday and instructed Fourtner to look up the law. Return From Rochester. KANAWHA-- Mr. and Mrs. C. R.! Powers returned Saturday f r o m !
