U.S. Supreme Court

Hardy v. United States, 186 U.S. 224 (1902)

Hardy v. United States

No. 602

Submitted April 28, 1902

Decided June 2, 1902

186 U.S. 224


The action of a trial court, upon an application for a continuance, is purely a matter of discretion, and not subject to review by this Court unless it be clearly shown that such discretion has been abused, and in this case it could not be said that an abuse of discretion was clearly shown.

There is no impropriety in permitting the government to search the mind of a juror, to ascertain if his views on circumstantial evidence were such as to preclude him from finding a verdict of guilty, with the extremest penalty which the law allows.

Voluntary statements made by a defendant before and after a preliminary examination are admissible in evidence when made to the magistrate who conducted the preliminary examination.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
