Batchelor v. United States

In Batchelor v. United States, 156 U. S. 426, 15 S. Ct. 446, 39 L. Ed. 478, an indictment was held bad which charged misapplication of bank funds, but did not charge that the misapplication was unlawful. In that case, defendant was charged with misapplying certain sums, each misapplication constituting a separate crime. There were many misapplications referred to generally, but neither the amounts nor the means employed were specified, and it was quite apparent that neither constitutional right was protected.
