Berkman v. United States

No. 865

Argued April 16, 1919

Decided May 19, 1919

250 U.S. 114


A defendant under indictment who, pursuant to an order obtained on his own application, voluntarily deposits cash in the registry in lieu of bail does so with full knowledge that, under Rev.Stats. § 828, if applicable to such cases, one percent may be taxed as compensation to the clerk for receiving, keeping, and paying out the money, and the contentions that the retention of such percentage, upon return of the deposit after his conviction, brings that § in conflict with the Fifth and Eighth Amendments, and Art. IV, § 2, of the Constitution are frivolous, and will not support a direct writ of error under Jud.Code, § 238. P. 250 U. S. 117.

Writ of error dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
