Aichinger, John (Found Not Guilty – 13 Jan 1919)
Circuit Court opened again on Monday afternoon with Judge Wickham of Eau Claire on the bench. It seems evident that the balance of the jury cases will be tried this week and the jury discharged. On Monday afternoon the case of the State vs. John Aichinger was started. In this case, the State charged Aichinger with selling liquor in violation of the city’s dry condition. On Oct. 16th the city authorities found a considerable quantity of beer on the premises of the defendant and this capture was brought into court. The beer and the evidence of one witness who testified to having bought whiskey off Aichinger on several occasions was the bulk of the testimony presented by the State. As the witness had testified in the preliminary examination to not having ever bought liquor off Aichinger, his testimony seems not to have been taken as reliable by the jury, and Aichinger was found not guilty.
