130 years ago today - 130 years ago - Mar 12, 1889 (Tuesday)

In the First District Court, at Provo, Thos. Didriksen, of Spanish Fork, was sentenced by Judge Judd to 65 days' imprisonment, and Hans Nielsen (who had just served a term in the Penitentiary, for u.c. [Unlawful Cohabitation, I.E. living with a polygamous wife]) to 125 days' imprisonment, for "adultery." Nielsen petitioned for a writ of habeas corpus, representing that he was being punished twice for the same offense. The writ was refused, and the case appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States.
