HOUSTON JUDGE TALKS ON NEW CRIMINAL CODE HERE Judge Fred Hooey of the Sixth -filed and had a reasonable period Criminal District Court in Houston discussed some of the controversial portions of the new Texas Code of Criminal Proce-i dure when he spoke at a Baytown Optimist Club meeting. Judge Hooey was in the Harris County District Attorney's office for six years. The judge said the code has made many changes in the trial must of criminal cases. of time in which to investigate the alleged crime. They could take the accused around to different parts of town to be identified by various witnesses and could even take the accused out of the county, the judsre explained. "However," the judge continued, "since the new code he immediately taken be- fore ^ nearest magistrate and „ . , ,. as a result, this frequently ham- H e said that perhaps the one j enforcement officers ta Y«.*lClr\>1 Yn/%ct *»»M»-l/»l-»ffn3 KIT wx_ ^ — »^ provision most criticized by police officers and prosecutors Is one that requires that a person their investigation."

Before ttus after change, the police officers could keep an accused person in custody before formal charges were ;sions. The old code authorized oral confessions." "As a result of these confessions, police officers were unable to recover the fruits of that crime. For example, if an accused orrally stated to the officer that he hid a There's a lot to do in BAYTOWN If you've newly arrived, looking for the newest shows, the best places to eat. a week-end resort, your church or synagogue, plzcex to shop or perhaps > house or apartment .... read th» aii* Phone 583-4390 To Get Honorarfes SOUTH BEND, ind. (AP) — Twenty religious leaders of several faiths who attended the Vatican Ecumenical Conference in Rome will receive honorary doctor of laws degrees from the University of Notre Dame March 23. Republicans HARRIS COUNTY Republican executive committee will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 21. on the sixth floor of the new court house in Houston to select the hour and site for the county convention, to determine the order of candidates on the Primary ballot and to set the time and places of precinct conventions. pitol in a certain place and as a result of this statement the officers actually recovered a pistol in that place, then the oral statement could be admitted in evidence against the accused. The new code tates that, this oral statement must be reduced to wriang and signed by someone besides a police officer. The statement does not have to be signed by the accused but officers complain that they have difficulty in finding impartial wit nesses to reduce a statement to writing." Judge Hooey pointed out that the code contains many much needed changes. One change he calls "very beneficial is that jurors no longer have to be locked up overnight during the I pendency of criminal cases. This is a matter now within the discretion of the court and Judge Hooey said he does not intend to lock up jurors in criminal cases. Another change th e judge discussed was the elimination of the absolute right of severance. Judge Hooey recited one example in which two defendants were charged with the same crime and they were tried separately. One defendant received two years in prison while the other only received four months. Under the new code, these defendants would probably be tried together and would receive the same sentences, he said. Another "important change" cited by Judge Hooey was the enactment of the misdemeanor probation law. The judge expressed no opinion as to the new Code of Criminal Procedure and advised that "the law must be accepted or rejected by the public." LITTLEFIELDS SPECIALS GOOD MAHCH 17-18-19 1601 S.
