Statler v. United States, 157 U.S. 277 (1895)
Statler v. United States
Argued March 7, 1895
Decided March 25, 1895
157 U.S. 277
The first count in an indictment containing three counts charged the accused with "having counterfeit coin in his possession, with intent to defraud certain persons to this grand inquest unknown." The jury found him "guilty in the first count for having in possession counterfeit minor coin. Not guilty as to second and third counts." Held that the verdict was a general verdict of guilty under the first count, and that the word attached did not qualify the conclusion of guilt.
The case is stated in the opinion.
