Governor of Nebraska Not |
Impressed by Wife
Desertion Story .
Lincoln, Neb., v , (Special)—
Declaring his inability to conceive of
Harley Henderson being able to com
mit a crime in Kansas on August 7,
1925, when the complainant admits
he was not in that state at the time, •
Governor McMullen has turned down
a request from the governor of that
state to extradite the youth, a World
war veteran, living in Omaha, on the
charge of child desertion.
The attorneys for Kansas said that
his offense was Included in the list
of constructive crimes. He and his
wife separated and were divorced in
1920. He did not comply, at all
times, with the order to send tho
mother $20 a month for I he support
of the child, and when she heard
Harley had married again she filed
complaint charging child desertion.
The attorneys said that this is a
continuing offense and exists every
day that the desertion Is in effect,
hence he was constructively in Kan
sas even if not physically present
the day charged. Child desertion is
a felony In Kansas.
The governor said he could not re
gard Henderson as a fugitive from
justice when he had not run away
from Kansas, not having been there
in the first place but forced him to
arrange to pay $200 to the mother.
