Biography: 

We've identified the man who presides over Lee's trial as "upper class" based on the status of the title "Judge" in Faulkner's other fiction. In Sanctuary the judge is never individualized at all. He is not even called "judge" by the narrative, just "the Court" (270, 282, etc.). Similarly, throughout the trial the prosecuting attorney, who has already been carefully characterized by name as Eustace Graham, is not called anything but "the District Attorney" (283, etc.). It is a curious elision on Faulkner's part.
