Judge Also Orders Perjury Charge Against Pair
May 4, 1932—Two Norwood youths, Patrick Curran, 18, of Warren st, and Everett Saunders of Nahatan st, were held in $1500 each for the Grand Jury today when Judge Clifford B. Sanborn of the Dedham District Court found probable cause on two complaints of carrying a revolver and defacing a tomb in a Norwood cemetery. The bench also ordered a third complaint, of perjury, brought against the two youths.
Chief William H. Sullivan of the Norwood police, charged that on April 9 the boys shot a number of holes through the mausoleum in the Hillside Cemetery, (Edit: Highview Cemetery) Norwood, owned by Frank O. Winslow, father-in-law of Ex-Gov Frank G. Allen. The youths, Chief Sullivan testified, also shot at other tombstones in the cemetery and at the Norwood water tower.
The perjury charge against the pair was ordered by Judge Sanborn when Saunders, on the witness stand, denied certain details of an alleged confession Chief Sullivan had produced in his previous testimony.
Judge Sanborn ordered each youth held in $500 on each of the three complaints, a total of $1500 for each boy.
