On Friday, May 22, 1970, Billy Feagin, an Andalusia Ne- gro, pleaded guilty to one count of First Degree Forgery. He had been charged by the State of Alabama with the forging of a check. Upon his plea of guilty he was sentenced to three years in the Penitentiary of Ala- bama and was ordered to begin serving his sentence immedia- tely. Eugene Cartwright, an Anda- lusia white youth, pleaded guilty to two separate counts of For- gery in the Second Degree and was sentenced by Judge Smith to a year and a day in each case to run consecutively. Cart- wright applied for probation and a hearing was set for June 9, 1970, on his probation appli- cation.
