THEFT OF CATTLE

RESTITUTION ORDERED

MAORI YOUTHS' OFFENCE

"This is their first offence, and, though it is a serious one, there are circumstances making it less serious than the ordinary case of that kind," said Mr. Jenkins in the Supreme Court to-day in a plea for probation for two Maoris, Dean Donald Aoake (22) and Jack Aoake (17) who had admitted the theft of cattle, four heifers, belonging to a widow at Matamata.

Counsel pointed out that accused were well spoken of by the district, probation officer, and were in work. They said the owner, Mrs. Marsh, owed them some money, and they took the cattle which were found straying on the road.

His Honor: I notice the effect of the theft was that the owner, Mrs. Marsh, lost a season's milking from the four heifers. Seeing she did not have to feed them the loss would probably be £25 for the season.

Counsel agreed that this was the case, and pointed out that the accused had employment to go to at once.

His Honor put the accused on probation for 12 months, with a special condition that the elder should pay 25/ a month and .the younger 17/6 a month, to be paid in restitution to the owner of the cattle.
