Bentley, W.N. (Sentenced for Forgery – 8 Aug 1918)

Janesville – Entering a plea of guilty to the charge of forgery in the municipal court here, W.N. Bentley, aged 68, was sentenced to one year at hard labor in the state penitentiary at Waupun. Bentley, who is a college graduate and was once a prosperous man, blames his downfall to liquor. He begged for his freedom, but as he has already served twelve years in prison, sentence was pronounced.
