Collection City of Orlando Municipal Court Ledgers
Title City of Orlando Municipal Court Ledgers
Scope & Content Seven ledgers containing cases brought before the City of Orlando Municipal Court from 1923-1926. Offenders in these ledgers broke various city laws and ordinances.

Also includes a folder of documents that were in Volume 16. These include:
1. (page 5) Letter written by Municipal Court Judge Parker F. Enwright to L. M. Autrey and Chief of Police Baker. Enwright explains why he reduced a fine imposed upon O. W. Connor for driving while intoxicated. Connor was apparently arrested once on the charge, inadvertently released, and then arrested again for the same charge. Judge Enwright believed that this was unfair to Connor in that he ought not to have been released and thus arrested a second time.
2. (page 179) contains a set of affidavits pertaining to the arrest of a James V. Cranford on account of some kind of drunkenness-related charge. Three affiants swore that they had interacted with Cranford shortly prior to his arrest and that all three swore that Cranford did not appear intoxicated in any way. A hand-written note states that Cranford had $225 of his $250 fine returned to him on account of the affidavits. He did have to pay $25 on the charge.
3. (page 233) Judge Enwright memo to Mr. Wood. The letter informs Wood that "the case of Mr. Hodson and Miss Graham" has been dismissed and the "Bonds refunded to the Defendants". No explanation is given as to the dismissal or the refund.
