U.S. Supreme Court

Boyd v. United States, 142 U.S. 450 (1892)

Boyd v. United States

No. 1048

Argued December 16, 1891

Decided January 4, 1892

142 U.S. 450


The full and unconditional pardon of a person convicted of larceny and sentenced to imprisonment therefor completely restores his competency as a witness, although it may be stated in the pardon that it was given for that purpose.

On the trial of a person indicted for murder, it appeared in evidence that the killing followed an attempt to rob. The court admitted, under objections, evidence tending to show that the prisoner had committed other robberies in that neighborhood, on different days shortly before the time when the killing took place, and exceptions were taken. Held that the evidence was inadmissible for any purpose.

The case is stated in the opinion.
