2. French Retrospect

  • M. Motet (a1)

In its audience of January 26, 1881, the Court of Appeals of Correctional Police annulled the judgment of the lower bench, condemning Emile D—to three months' imprisonment as guilty of public outrage to decency. This man had been arrested the 18th October, 1880, at half-past eight in the evening, by agents of the Service des Móurs, who were on watch near one of the public urinals, Rue Sainte-Cécile. These agents affirmed to have seen many things while noticing that D—had remained over half-an-hour within the urinal. They even pretended that D—had incited one of them with an immoral purpose, without being, however, able to state that other persons had been objects of such solicitation.
