"amazing, startling and exciting." !

Circuit Court to two years •in prison. At his trial, Collins argued the pistol could not have been concealed because the pocket it was in had been'sewn up so near the opening the" weapon would ; not fit all the 'way down. -Th e prosecutor insisted the pocket had "been sewn "up" after ColMns was arrested. During the trial, the judge interjected: "They've been sewn up «once since you had -that pistol taken out of them, haven't they?" This, sadd Collins, indicated the judge's disbelief in the veracity of- the defendant/ And another thing, Collins said, bhe trial judge commented in the presence of the jury: ' "Tell them to come in, they have already had am- hour to fix that pocket the gun was in." Because of the judge's remarks, Coffins argued he did not have a fair trial and was denied due process of law. The Illation, which has been going on for-two years, got its start when police packed' up Collins for being publicly- drunk. Then they found a snuibnosed .38 in his right front pocket.
