(Accomplice) Arrested and Charged13 November 1938Two young men, L. L. Powell, 25, and Rex Holt, 24, both residents of Cisco, were arrested on 13 November 1938 in Fort Worth, Texas, and charged with automobile theft and armed robbery of a service station. A third man, Pete Eudy, who had left the car a few minutes before Powell and Holt were arrested, later surrendered to police. The two men initially in custody readily admitted their part in the robbery, blaming whisky for their complicity. The men had stolen the car in Cisco, Eastland County, Texas and driven it to Stamford, in Jones County, Texas where they committed the robbery, then were apprehended with the car in Fort Worth.5,8,9,10,11
(Accomplice) Criminal Conviction30 January 1939J. M. Eudy was the first of the three men to go on trial. He pleaded guilty to the 13 November armed robbery of a filling station in west Stamford and blamed his entanglement with the law on his two companions. Eudy told the court he had a wife and seven children and had understood he was accepting a ride to Fort Worth when he left his home with Rexford Holt and L. L. Powell. Those two men, the newspaper wrote, were currently in jail in default of bond, pending trial in connection with the same robbery.

Subsequently, Eudy testified, he was informed the automobile in which he rode was stolen. He said his companions told him they were bound not for Fort Worth but El Paso, where a market assertedly awaited the car. Eudy said they drove a circuitous route to Stamford where a filing station was robbed, and then fled, but not to El Paso. The trio drove to Oklahoma City, failed to sell the automobile because they were without proper papers, then finally went to Fort Worth. He said he left his companions only 15 minutes before their arrest and later surrendered "to face the music."

The jury, which was required in a trial on a capital offense even when the plea was guilty, sentenced Eudy to five years in state prison.5,8,9,10,11
Criminal Conviction*2 May 1939The second man to go on trial in connection with the Stamford service station holdup on 13 November 1938 was Rexford Holt of Cisco, Texas. His trial began on Tuesday morning, 2 May 1939 in District Court, Anson, Jones County, Texas, with jury selection completed at noon. Testimony was presented during the afternoon, and attorneys' arguments were heard the following morning. Unfortunately, we did not find information in the newspapers about what the jury heard at his trial. We did learn, however, that they returned with their verdict after 30 minutes, found Holt guilty in connection with the holdup, and sentenced him to five years in state prison for armed robbery. At the time of Holt's conviction, the first of his accomplices to go on trial, J. M. Eudy, had already been convicted of the same crime. Eudy had also been sentenced to five years in state prison and had begun serving his sentence in April. The trial of the third man, L. L. Powell, was scheduled to begin the following day.5,8,9,10,11
(Accomplice) Criminal Conviction4 May 1939The trial of his accomplice, L. L. Powell, in connection with the Stamford service station holdup on 13 November 1938 began on Thursday, morning, 4 May 1939 in District Court, Anson, Texas. Powell was the last of the three men to appear in court. Both J. M. Eudy and Rexford Holt had been found guilty of armed robbery and had been sentenced to five years in state prison. Powell pleaded not guilty and jury selection was completed at 11 o'clock.

The State called only two witnesses, the owner of the station that was robbed, and a customer who was inside the station at the time. The owner was the first witness examined, and testified that three men entered his station the night of the holdup but was unable to positively identify Powell. The customer, who was inside the station talking to Pete Eudy, who had previously been convicted in connected with the holdup, definitely identified Powell as the third man. It was established that J. M. Eudy was also called "Pete" Eudy. He said that Powell and Rexford Holt, who had been convicted the previous day, followed the owner into the station after their car had been serviced, and the holdup followed immediately. The customer testified that Powell was the one who locked him and the owner in the men's washroom while Eudy kept them covered at pistol point and Holt looted the cash register.

The jury deliberated only 30 minutes, and returned a verdict of guilty, making Powell the third and last man convicted in the holdup. He was sentenced, as were his two accomplices, to five years in state prison.5,8,9,10,11
Prison Records*18 February 1940 After appealing his conviction unsuccessfully, his official sentencing date became 9 February 1940. He was transferred from the jail to the Texas State Penitentiary, Huntsville, Walker County, on 18 February 1940 where he was processed into the prison system.
