Jan. 22, 1910: Child molester Edward Powelson thanks the judge for sentencing him to 180 days for vagrancy. "Judge, there is something wrong with my head," he says. "I ask no mercy. I think a term in jail will do me good. I do these things whenever I take a drink. I have known when sober that I would be caught some time. Time and again I have resolved to quit drinking but couldn't stay away from liquor. I think a jail sentence will help me reform."
