Abstract

The confession of Johann Georg N., a 37 year old, married, Catholic father of one 14 year old girl. His father was a soldier and his mother was deceased. He had been a piper in the army in his youth but had deserted. He had several prior arrests for stealing and had served many years in prison already. He had been imprisoned in both Germany and Austria. The last time he was caught stealing was in Germany, where he was arrested and admitted (under torture) to many robberies committed with accomplices. He was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged until dead.
