KKiHT Ike New* Frederick, Md, Wednesday, November Z8,1951 Sherry And Bucher Guilty BALTIMORE, Nov. 27, W)--Police Lieut Henry. T. Sherry and former Lieut. Joseph^ R. Bucher were convicted by a Criminal Court jury tonight of taking $2,102.50 In "bribes to let confidence men and flim-flam artists operate unmolest- -ed in Baltimore. The jury of HT men and two women returned guilty verdiits on all ave counts in the three indictments charging conspiracy, bribery and malfeasance. The conspiracy conviction carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, and bribery, 12 years and a fine of $5.000. There is no ceiling on the malfeasance charge, classed under common law. Judge Joseph Sherbow said he would sentence the men at 10 a. m. -.Friday barring the filing of a .motion, for a new trial. The jury too*, one hour and 35 minutes to reach its decision. The case went to the body not long after a Washington detective sergeant testified a Cleveland confidence man had boasted he could frame the two men. The surprise defense witness, Miller A. Dixon, said the confidence man, Oakey Jackson, threatened to "frame" the officers in hopes of wiping out a robbery case against him. Sherry and Buche^ denied the charges against them when they appeared on the stand earlier. Dixon was hurriedly called from Washington after Defense Attorney Eugene O'Dunne, a former judge, said he expected the prosecution to take longer in presenting its case. The Washington detective said he met Jackson at Jackson's Cleveland home last year while on . vacation. Dixon explained to the court he was trying to dig up some evidence about two women who took part in a 54,100 swindle in Washington. Was Known By Sherry Dixon testified: "He (Jackson) said he had enough money to pay a dozen confidence men and women to come to Baltimore to frame him (Sherry).'' The witness said Jackson had told about being picked up on robbery charges in Baltimore last July 18, and that Lieutenant Sherry knew him to be a flim flammer. Judge Sherbow wanted to know why Dixon had not made an official report to his own superiors and to Baltimore authorities. Dixon replied the thought Jackson was just "blowing off at the mouth." He added he didn't know about the charges against the Baltimore detectives until Nov. 11, and that he thei\ told his superior, Inspector Robert Murray, now acting Chief of Police in Washington. Sherry and Bucher acknowledged they had telephone conversations with Jackson in Cleveland. But, they told the court, these only had to do with informer's tips, and Bucher said the tips turned out to be worthless. Sherry said under cross-examination that Jackson was the only one he had made such collect calls to.
