The Sate - 29 Dec 1894 "A False Accusation Mr. Wade Leaphart Charged with House-Breaking, But Discharged. Mr. Wade Leaphart, a prominent citizen, merchant and postmaster, at Lewedale, S. C. was arrested on Monday last by Constable Brunson and incarcerated in Lexington jail on the charge of breaking into the dispensary at Lewedale. After a preliminary examination before Trial Justice Muller at Lexington on Thursday last, Mr. Leaphart was entirely exonorated [sic] and was discharged. He was represented by Messrs. J. Brooks Wingard and A. M. Boozer. The State was represented by G. T. Graham, Esq. The testimony against Mr. Leaphart was the flimsiest character, and many of his friends are naturally indignant that a citizen, bearing a character for strict integrity, should thus be subjected to humiliation. Some of then say it is political prosecution. Mr. Leaphart is an outspoken conservative."
