In re William V. Bradley

No. 473

Argued January 8, 1943

Decided February 1, 1943

318 U.S. 50


A federal court having erroneously imposed upon the petitioner a sentence of fine and imprisonment for contempt (Jud.Code § 268, 28 U.S.C. § 385), and the fine having been paid to the clerk of the court, who gave a receipt therefor, the court is without power thereafter -- although the money had not been covered into the Treasury -- to modify the sentence to one of imprisonment only, and the petitioner must be discharged. P. 318 U. S. 52.
