Hill's horrible crime

Hill's horrible crime

In the early 1900s most newspapers did not cover sexual crimes. New Zealand Truth was the exception. Here, it details the 1907 case of J. Hill, the custodian of the Young Men's Club of Petone, who was imprisoned for a month for exposing himself to children.
