Crime and punishment – as seen 100 years ago
Thursday 10th January 2013, 12:30PM GMT.
DETAILS of burglars, bigamists and brothels are among more than 200 records released by Jersey Archive this week.
Each year the archive – run by Jersey Heritage – opens hundreds of documents that have remained secret for 30, 75 or 100 years.
Police photographs from albums kept by the force in 1912 hold images of those convicted of theft, serious assault, dangerous driving, vagrancy, prostitution and running a brothel.
These include the case of three bumbling criminals who came unstuck after stealing alcohol from a shop owned by Ann Street Brewery in 1912.
