Pergunta: Por que José foi multado se ele não era culpado?
Question: Why was Joseph fined if he wasn't found guilty of anything?
Joseph was never fined - the bills from Judge Neely and Constable DeZeng were for court costs
The court did not assess a fine against Joseph. There were bills made out by Judge Neely and Constable DeZeng, but these were for costs. Those bills were directed to the County for payment of witnesses, etc., not to Joseph.
