HARRY PIERPONT TURNS STATE EVIDENCE IN HIS TRIAL FOR BANK ROBBERY
(Special by United Press)
Kokomo, Ind., May 6. - The defense sprang a surprise in the trial Wednesday of Harry Pierpont, Indianapolis, charged with robbing the South Side Bank here. Pierpont took the stand and admitted practically all of the evidence contained in a confession made by Thaddeus Skeer, of Fort Wayne, who was arrested with him after the robbery. Pierpont told of entering and holding up the bank and fleeing to Fort Wayne, where he said the loot was divided between himself and three others. He said that the robbery was planned by Skeer.
Cousin Harry PIERPONT (1902-1934) was sentenced to 10 to 21 years for the robbery of the South Side State Bank in Kokomo, Indiana.
