Sec. 391. Summary trials authorized

-STATUTE-

Whenever a complaint shall be made against any master, officer,

or seaman of any vessel belonging, in whole or in part, to any

citizen of the United States, of the commission of any offense, not

capital or otherwise infamous, against any law of the United States

made for the protection of persons or property engaged in commerce

or navigation, it shall be the duty of the United States attorney

to investigate the same, and the general nature thereof, and if, in

his opinion, the case is such as should be summarily tried, he

shall report the same to the district judge, and the judge shall

forthwith, or as soon as the ordinary business of the court will

permit, proceed to try the cause, and for that purpose may, if

necessary, hold a special session of the court, either in term time

or vacation.

Sec. 392. Complaint and answer; jury trial

-STATUTE-

At the summary trial of offenses against the laws for the

protection of persons or property engaged in commerce or

navigation, it shall not be necessary that the accused shall have

been previously indicted, but a statement of complaint, verified by

oath in writing, shall be presented to the court, setting out the

offense in such manner as clearly to apprise the accused of the

character of the offense complained of, and to enable him to answer

the complaint. The complaint or statement shall be read to the

accused, who may plead to or answer the same, or make a

counterstatement. The trial shall thereupon be proceeded with in a

summary manner, and the case shall be decided by the court, unless,

at the time for pleading or answering, the accused shall demand a

jury, in which case the trial shall be upon the complaint and plea

of not guilty.

Sec. 393. Amendments of complaint and adjournments

-STATUTE-

It shall be lawful for the court to allow the United States

attorney to amend his statement of complaint at any stage of the

proceedings, before verdict, if, in the opinion of the court, such

amendment will work no injustice to the accused; and if it appears

to the court that the accused is unprepared to meet the charge as

amended, and that an adjournment of the cause will promote the ends

of justice, such adjournment shall be made, until a further day, to

be fixed by the court.
