Description: 

Monk is arraigned by a Justice of the Peace before being tried before a judge and jury. The story doesn't say where the "J.P.'s office" is (42). Mississippi no longer uses this system, but at the date of the story there were Justices of the Peace in various parts of the county, so this office could be located outside Jefferson, in the neighborhood of the killing - or (as in other Faulkner texts) it could be in the county courthouse itself. As a kind of compromise, we have chosen to put the office on the Square.
