When a father pleaded he needed his son to drive a truck, Judge Samuel M. Shay yesterday suspended a Rahway Reformatory sentence, for the youth and placed him on probation.

The youth is Raymond Kocinski, 19, of Liberty Street near Mt. Ephraim Avenue. He was sentenced to Rahway last January 3 after he was found guilty of breaking into the home of Edward Ferat, 1476 Kaighn Avenue, and taking $50 and $550 in jewelry Nov. 6, in company with another youth.

The father, Joseph Kocinski, appeared before Judge Shay in Common Pleas Court, said he was crippled and needed his son to drive a truck in the fruit and produce business. Judge Shay suspended sentence and placed Raymond in custody of Clifford Schemeley, county probation officer.
