Girl Who Refused to Plead Guilty to
Stealing Released.

Leota Fullerton, the girl who has spent all of the spring and half the summer in the county jail rather than plead guilty to stealing a dress from Mrs. E. S. Truitt, of 107 West Armour boulevard, the crime with which she was charged, was yesterday afternoon released on a $750 bond, furnished by Attorney W. W. Calvin. The girl will tell her story to a jury in the criminal court next October. She claims that Mrs. Truitt gave her the dress instead of a week's wages as a domestic.
