The tramp and the case of the misdiagnosed venereal disease

Some highlights from a 1965 Reader’s Digest article about criminal law in Los Angeles:

Referring to all of the lawyers at the DA’s office, the District Attorney says, “none of my men…”

A recent law school graduate is referred to a “youngster.”

“Known racketeers” are a concern.

One criminal is described as a “tramp.”

A mistaken belief that he had a “venereal disease” put one defendant on a road that eventually caused him to cross paths with the aforementioned tramp.

The defendant who thought he had a venereal disease plead guilty, got a suspended sentence, and eventually became a doctor.
