U.S. Supreme Court

Bennett v. United States, 227 U.S. 333 (1913)

Bennett v. United States

No. 603

Argued January 8, 1913

Decided February 24, 1913

227 U.S. 333


Hoke v. United States, ante, p. 227 U. S. 308, followed to effect that the White Slave Traffic Act of June 25, 1910, is constitutional.

A variance in names cannot prejudice defendant if the allegation in the indictment and the proof so correspond that the defendant is informed of the charge and protected against another prosecution for the same offense.

Variances as to the name of the woman transported or in the place where the tickets were procured or as to the number transported, between the indictment and proof of offense under the White Slave Traffic Act held not to have prejudiced the defendants, and not to be reversible error.

Instructions to the jury that there is testimony tending to corroborate the testimony of a witness charged with being an accomplice and that it is for the jury to consider the force and value of the testimony and the weight to be given to it is sufficient to properly leave the matter with the jury.

194 F.6d 0 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
