Elizabeth Ackley in 1724 Colchester, CT accused Sarah Spencer of witchcraft by "riding and pinching." Her husband James threatened Sarah. A minister testified to Sarah being an upstanding Christian. Sarah Spencer in response sued them for 500 pounds. She received 5 pounds and costs. The Ackleys appealed, and Sarahreceived only 1 shilling. The Ackleys were declared not insane, and so were credible witnesses.
