Scope and Content

This series contains a record of forfeitures or fines paid in the Justice of the Peace court in Bingham Canyon. The series was created in order to support the creation of the Justice of the Peace reports presented to the Bingham Canyon Town Council and to maintain a record of receipts from these sources. Entries show the name of the defendant, amounts paid, dates paid, and charge for which fined. Periodically, approximately at two week intervals, the amounts are totaled and followed with a certifying statement and the signature of the Justice of the Peace.

Arrangement

Chronological by date of payment of fine or forfeiture.

Research Note

This series appears to be primarily concerned with gambling-related crimes. It is possible that this series was intended to be used only for these crimes; however, that was not determinable during processing.
