Calendar of the Prisoners who were for trial these Assizes — Thomas Hares and Robert Bartlett, charged with felony at the last Assises, but remanded, on account of the absence of a materiel witness for the prosecution,
Taunton Courier, 22 Aug 1827.
Thomas Hares and Robert Bartlett were found guilty of a burglary in the draper’s shop of a foreigner, named Mandousky, in Wells, and one of the witnesses on the trial was committed by the Court for gross prevarication. It appeared that two or three of the witnesses, one of whom was an occasional driver of a waggon, had evidently assisted in the disposal of the stolen property, which consisted of a quantity of silk handkerchiefs and other soft goods, although they appeared now as witnesses to promote public justice.
