    Roy Bean only sentenced two people to hang, one escaped and I believe the other was granted a reprieve by performing some type of manual labor for the betterment of the community. In fact Roy Bean usually opted for a fine, what ever the defendant happen to have on his person. Isaac Parker, over in Ft. Smith on the other hand presided over 79 hangings.
