This case was appealed, unsuccessfully, in 1914 by Jaco Roth - with his attorney R.H. Gilmore of Denver.
1915 Loveland Colorado "Jacob Roth, who had two ribs broken and suffered internal injuries from a blow with an axe in the hands, it is alleged, of J. L. Patterson, Monday morning, is in a very serious condition. He has been coughing blood and Dr. J. E. Ford, the attending physician, said his lungs had apparently been injured by the blow. Patterson plead not guilty to a charge of assault and battery when brought before Police Magistrate Ira Payne, and was placed under bond of $l,OOO to await trial. Failing to give bond, he is being held in the county jail at Fort Collins. If Roth’s injuries should turn out fatally, a more serious charge will be lodged against Patterson."
