To Receive Five Lashes...
Washington County, Arkansas
At the June term of 1833 the Second Judicial Circuit Court of Washington County, Samuel Wackard was called upon to answer the charge of stealing a steer, valued at $12, from one John Musick.
The jury decided that he was guilty, and that he should pay to the owner of the steer $24, pay a fine of $24, receive five lashes upon his bare back and stand in the pillory fifteen minutes.
