In the Supreme Court to-day, before Acting Justice Dickson, William Timmins, Norman Timmins, and Alice Pattison, charged with attempting to kill, but found guilty of assaulting, Constable Pincott in the execution of his duty, were brought up for sentence. The police records showed that there were 50 previous convictions against the woman, but no previous convictions against the other accused.  His Honor sentenced William Timmins to two years' hard labour; Alice Patterson to two years without hard labour; and Norman Timmins to l8 months' hard labour. In passing sentence, His Honor said: -The jury very leniently withdrew the charge of attempted murder, and convicted you of assault. . The woman in this case was the worst offender. She broke a bottle of beer over the constable's head, and when he struggled to his feet, half-dazed, she struck him again with another beer bottle. She also hit him on the head with a bucket.  The policeman was kicked and punched by his three assailants, and was eventually dragged off a ferry boat and pushed into the river. He eventually regained the shore.
