Gloucester Spring assizes.
Henry Burnell, 24, and Charles Cool, 20, were charged with violently assaulting Mark Isaacs, at Bilton, on the night of the 15th December, pulling him bodily fear and stealing from his person two sovereigns and sixteen shillings his property. The jury requested leave to retire and after an absence of three quarters of an hour, returned a verdict of guilty of the robbery against Burnell and acquitted Cool. Burnell, who is an old offender, was then sentenced to fifteen years’ transportation.
