HOUSE OF COMMONS
THE CASE OF BRODIE

Mr. Pickersgill asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it was correct that William Wallace Brodie, who was recently charged on his own confession with the Whitechapel murder, was in May 1887 sentenced to 14 years' penal servitude, and was in August 1888 discharged on licence; and, if so, of what offence he had been convicted, and why he had been discharged. Mr. Stuart Wortley:- William Brodie was convicted in May 1877, not in 1887, of larceny in a dwelling house and sentenced to 14 years' penal servitude. He was discharged on licence in the ordinary course in August 1888, after serving rather more than 11 years of his sentence.
