State v. Disbrow

Iowa Supreme Court
106 N.W. 263 (1906)


Facts

Disbrow (defendant) had engaged in several acts of embezzlement over a six-year period. A first indictment against Disbrow had been set aside as defective because the act of embezzlement complained of had expired due to the statute of limitations. A second indictment had charged Disbrow with embezzlement acts which were within the statute of limitations. Disbrow was convicted and he appealed, arguing that the trial judge erred in instructing the jury that Disbrow could be convicted of all his acts of embezzlement which had occurred within three years prior to the return of the first indictment.
