PRINTS AMONG MEN

Profile America — Sunday, May 27th. The first criminal case in the country in which fingerprint evidence alone won conviction occurred this month in New York City in 1911. Burglary suspect Caesar Cella, alias Charles Crispi, was undone by prints identified by detective Joseph Faurot. The first known crime case solved by fingerprint matching occurred in 1898 in India, but the unique pattern of each person’s fingerprints had been known since ancient China. The Census Bureau's national prisoner statistics program reports the federal and state prison population to the U.S. Justice Department. As of the year 2016, such prisons held just over 1.5 million people, with a bit fewer than 190,000 in federal penitentiaries.
