Murder Suspect To Get Fair 7ria' Houston (NC) -- Auxiliary.- Bishop Patrick Flores of Sah Antonio believes it takes money to get a fair court trial, so he gave away his episcopal ring to help raise defense funds for a Mexican-American accused of murder here. The gold and amethyst ring of the nation's only Mexican- American Catholic bishop raised about $2,400 at a parish- sponsored raffle for Aureliano Silva, who is charged with murdering a real estate saleswoman. It was not surprising when Silva won the raffle because many who bought the $2 chance tickets had signed the names of Silva or Bishop Flores rather than their own. After the drawing, the Silva family returned the ring to the bishop. The prelate told NC News in an interview that he plans to have the ring engraved with these words: "Recuerdo de Aureliano Silva," a gift of Aureliano Silva. The ring was given originally to Bishop Flores by Archbishop Francis J. Furey, archbishop of San Antonio.) Silva, a young house painter, was working in the neigh- borhood where Mrs. June Grove Gleason was found beaten tff death in a house she was trying to sell. Within hours after the murder, which occurred more than a year ago, a sheriff had picked up Silva who then signed a confession of the killing. Bishop Flores said that Silva later told priests at Holy Name parish in Houston, where the Silva family belongs, that he was beaten and possibly drugged by deputy sheriffs before the confession was signed. "Whether that is true or not is between him and God," Bishop Flores said of Silva's account. "But at least that is what he said and the priests believe the story and are willing to help him get a fair trial." The bishop said he has had "tremendous experience with prisoners and for 14 years was closely connected with the county jail in Houston. I learned that people's getting justice very often depends on their ability to hire lawyers." Often, people do not get a fair trial because they don't have money for the proper defense, Bishop Flores said. "If money is supplied for this case, then a fair trial can he given. Whether the man is innocent or guilty is another thing.., that is up to the court, the judge and the jury to determine." The bishop added that "under the democratic set-up everyone should be entitled to a fair trial but often your educational status, financial and ethnical background determines whether you are given a fair trial or not. "I don't think this should be the case. Everyone should be given a chance at a fair trial, regardless." Silva is a soft-spoken man who speaks broken English and has had little education. His trial has already set a record for length of testimony for a Houston court. Testifying at the trial, which is continuing, was Bishop Flores who met the Silva family several years ago when he served at Holy Name church. When the bishop was asked by the court why he would divest himself of such a valuable ring on behalf of Silva, the bishop replied: "That is all I had to give." 1972 ARKANSAS TOUR OF HAWAII Personally Escorted by P,.
