Free On Parole, Will Aid Girl His Auto Hit

Washington Times
December 29, 1922


NEW YORK, Dec. 29.—"Liquor has brought you where you are today. You have given me your word of honor not to touch a drop of intoxicating liquor the rest of your life," County Judge Bleakley yesterday at White Plains told William Thompson, arraigned on the charge of driving while intoxicated.

Thompson went out of the courtroom, free until April, when he will be sentenced.

"The extent of your punishment depends upon the extent of reparation you make to the young woman you struck," said the court.

Thompson has been in jail six weeks. Friends offered bail, but he stuck to his cell saying he was going to recompense the State as much as was in his power.

His idea now is to get work and reimburse Miss Helen Dugan, twenty-five, of Bedford Hills, sole support of her mother, who is seriously injured as a result of the accident.

Thompson was madly driving a lampless automobile along a dark lane.
