The bond of $100 Martin had to pay would be $1,480 today. He probably could not afford it.
Martin had to wait until the last Tuesday in July when the Supreme Judicial Court met in order to have his case heard. The ledger says he was released on August 2.
But he had a second trial in October and according the the Supreme Judicial Court Record the District Attorney declined to prosecute. He was released and went back to his regiment.
