Abstract

Johann George Schutzmann, a 43 year-old, married, Catholic was convicted of theft and robbery. He operated with a gang of other robbers to commit break-ins. Earlier, he broke out of jail and severely wounded the jailer who chased him. He was sentenced to be hanged until death then buried at the site of the gallows. This sentence was lessened to death by the sword after which he would be allowed burial in hallowed ground.
