8»t., AUR. 30. 1975 • DCS MOINES REfllSTEII / 3 4 I guess they found me guilty' REGISTER PHOTO SNETHEN Continued from Page One began crying. She held the hand of her father. Snethen rocked back and forth in his chair at the counsel table, and paid no attention as Denato polled each juror on his vote on the verdict. Gives Reason Sheriff Clemens later explained that he brought the extra deputies to the courtroom for "security reasons." Pressed for an explanation, Clemens said: "The sheriff of Dallas County called me a couple of days ago and said he had heard rumors that if Snethen was found innocent there might be a disruption in the courtroom. So I just put extra men there as a precaution." Jury foreman M. D. Francies refused after the verdict was announced to say how many ballots the jury took or to discuss how their deliberations went. Another juror, who asked not to be identified, said more than one ballot was taken. Hawbaker's father, Donald Hawbaker, said of the' verdict: "It's been trying . . . it's been regrettable. I feel sorry for the Snethen boy and for his family, but all I can say is, why did this have to happen?" Mrs. Foster, Snethen's moth*"•. said later; "I wish my boy could get help. He's been in six P"isons and it has not helped him.'; Deputy Sheriff Patrick Bennett who escorted Snethen to Snethen returned to jail I ho Dnllr Pnlinttr Toll «iMat> thn " SUES N,W, BELL Carpet cleaners steamed over FOR $120,000 ^competitors' misleading claim By JOHN PIAZZA i By PATRICK LACKEY . *• * j A DCS Moines .woman has; Professional carpel cleaners been a promotion, and it's iextrartion.'
