"At the Birmingham Police Court today, a coppersmith named Joseph Rogers, of no fixed abode, was charged on a warrant with being drunk
in High Street, Deritend, on the 9th December. Ho was also summoned for assaulting his wife on the 8th of the month, and Mrs. Rogers said that her husband threatened
to "do her in," and struck her in the face several times with a boot. There was a further charge that he threatened a woman named Garner. There were previous
convictions against him, and he was now sentenced to four months' imprisonment with hard labour for the assault on his wife, was bound over to keep the peace for
nine months in respect to the charge of threats, and was discharged for the drunkenness."
