[blocks in formation]

DECISION. Whereas, a petition has been presented for his par-
don, signed by the County Judge and District Attorney who tried
the case, and by the person assaulted, and also by a large number
of respectable citizens of Contra Costa County, setting forth that
the offence was committed while he was under the influence of liquor,
the person assaulted not being injured, and that he was but an ac-
cessory in the assault, while the principal has been already par-
doned, and that said Soto, having been already imprisoned ninej
months, and having a large family depending upon him for support,
his punishment has already been sufficient, and justice has been
fully vindicated. Now, therefore, I hereby pardon the said Angel|
Soto. March 6, 1862.

Grounds on which Petition is based.

That the offence was committed while he
was under the influence of liquor, the|
person assaulted not being injured,
and that he, Soto, was but an acces-
sory in the assault, the principal having
been already pardoned, and that hav-
ing been already imprisoned nine
months, and a large family being de-
pendent upon him for their support,
his punishment has already been suf-
ficient, and the ends of justice satis-
fied.

DECISION. Whereas, a petition has been presented for his par-
don, signed by a large number of respectable citizens of San Ber-
nardino County, and the same is recommended by the County Judge
and District Attorney who tried the case, representing that there
was a doubt whether he was guilty of the larceny, and that he was
unfortunate in being found in the company of bad men, who were
the real criminals. His conduct during his imprisonment has been
good, and the punishment he has received is adequate to his sup-|
posed guilt. Now, therefore, I do hereby pardon the said Roy
McBride. April 4, 1862.

Grounds on which petition is based.
