From the Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald, Saturday 5 January, 1867. Price 1d.

Catherine Smith, was charged with uttering a counterfeit half-crown, in Northgate, on the 18th of Oct.

Mr. Barrow prosecuted.

Mrs. Bates, the wife of a grocer, in Northgate, proved that the prisoner offered her a bad half-crown on the day in question.

Mrs. Hiller, landlady of the "Britannia, Broad Street, proved that prisoner offered her a bad florin, in payment of her lodgings, which she took and afterwards handed it over to the Police Constable.

P.C. Groombridge produced the bad money, which Mr. Dobell swore to be counterfeit.

The prisoner, in her defence, said she did not know the money was bad; this was the first time she had been in a court of justice.
Guilty.

The Recorder said that from a paper he had before him he had little doubt that the prisoner was connected with a gang of swindlers. He warned her that if she appeared again before him she would be severely dealt with. She would now be sentenced to four months' hard labour in the city gaol.
