These two were busted for attempted rape of a minor (8-year-old girl)
This picture was taken much earlier than the original set of pictures in April 1865. This is Lewis Powell, a patriot of the Confederacy, he participated in the murder of Lincoln. This is a picture of him three months prior to execution by hanging. Pay attention to the shackles.
