Citation details: CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. (Before Mr Justice Simpson ) Mr. C.G. Wade, Crown Prosecutor. THE TRAGEDY AT ULTIMO Sydney Frederick Giblett, who was found guilty the previous day of the manslaughter of Ernest Henry Williams, was brought up for sentence. John Giblett, prisoner's brother, stated that prisoner was 35 years of age, and had been divorced by his wife. Prisoner had three children. Witness had never seen anything irrational in prisoner's conduct. When under the influence of drink prisoner was very excitable. His Honor at a later stage said he had considered with a great deal of anxiety in the interests of the public and also in the prisoner's interest what »entenco be ought to pass upon the pri- soner. The jury had given him the bene- fit of what the jury considered reasonable doubt as to prisoner being guilty of murder. The jury had acquitted him of murder and found him guilty of manslaughter. He (the Judge) had not any fault whatever to find with the verdict of the jury. Undoubtedly the prisoner had great provocation in circumstancos which he need not enumerate. The jury took that view and most properly came to the conclusion that they could not say prisoner intended to kill the man. There was no question whatever that prisoner fired at Williams, and prisoner fired in such a way as made it probable he would take the man's life. The main object of inflicting punishment was to deter others from per- petrating similar crimes. It was quite the reverse of a pleasure to him to pass sentence on the prisoner, but he must perform his duty. Giving to the case the best consideration, he had come to the conclusion that the sentence he ought to pass, and which he now did pass, upon the prisoner was that he be kept in penal servitude for 16 years.
