In court, the officer had claimed Nick had punched his face multiple times but didn’t have any pictures to show evidence of his beat-up face. The jury felt the police officer was lying. Therefore, this case was acquitted. The following week his next trial began for the murder of Mrs. Craig. No one in the court room could look at Yarris, because they felt he had killed her.
Gacy soon came to the realization that his dark secret would be open to the world, so he finally confessed to killing over thirty young men. Gacy even tried getting investigators to believe that he was mentally ill, he told investigators that “there were four Johns,” giving the illusion that he suffered from a multiple personality disorder. Doctors and investigators soon denied that remark, making Gacy stable enough to stand on
On the day of the murder, Booth ran into fellow actor John Matthews on the street and gave him a sealed letter for the National Intelligencer newspaper. The letter read Powell, Azterodt, and Herolds’ name, but did not mention Mary’s name once. Although, the letter left out other peoples names who were involved such as Dr. Mudd. Dr. Mudd helped Booth with his leg after Booth and Herold escaped and let them stay at his house. This is proof that Mary was guilty for participating in the plot, even if one little letter didn’t have her name on

With judicial decisions to the contrary, Sutcliffe will spend the rest of his life in Broadmoor Hospital.
After the trial ended, Tom Robinson was charged guilty and many people were satisfied with the verdict. During the trial Atticus tried to prove that Bob raped Mayella, not Tom. Clearly, Bob Ewell was not very happy that Atticus was claimed that he beat his daughter rather than Tom Robinson. So the day after the trial ended Bob Ewell decided to show Atticus that he was not happy. "It was Miss Stephanie 's pleasure to tell us: this morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face and told him he 'd get him if it took the rest of his life."
The police questioned Oswald over and over, he didn’t confess to the assassination of John F. Kennedy or police officer. Oswald continued to lie to the authorities about the rifle.

He was put on trial later that year, even though he had offered authorities a $4 million bribe. The original jury had to be replaced because Capone had bribed them. Finally, he was convicted in October of 1931 and was sentenced to 11 years in jail. Al Capone served his jail time in Atlanta as well
If there had been a black man on that jury, then the verdict might have been different. Months later, the men openly admitted to killing Emmett
Prior to this, his girlfriend, Twila Hoffman, had her car’s license recognized by a rape victim’s brother. The victim, Ann Jameson, recognized Ernesto in a police lineup a few days later as the man who assaulted her (Landmark Cases of the Supreme Court, Ernesto Miranda).

Another proven false confession, Wayne and Sharmon Stock were found shot to death in an upstairs bedroom in April 17, 2006. Police had no leads, so they focused the investigation toward the family. More than a few family member suggested that Matthew Livers a 29 year-old, had a tough relationship with his Uncle Wayne and wasn’t much liked by his Aunt Sharmon. Authorities also connected Livers cousin Nicholas Sampson a 28 year-old with first-degree murder.

Gacy was executed by Lethal Injection on May 9th, 1994.
I will always remember the demise of Stanley Tookie Williams which occurred on TV back in December 13, 2005. He was just 51 when he passes on by the deadly infusion. Stanley Tookie Williams was an indicted executioner, and he was likewise the posse 's prime supporter of the crips. Tookie case blended a national verbal confrontation about the death penalty versus the conceivably of recovery. I recollect watch his biography on TV, yes Tookie did a great deal of executing however the one he went to imprison for he didn 't submitted, so to me individual this was a wrongful passing.
The Alger Hiss trial is recognizable throughout the entire United States as a trial that went down in history as the greatest. The trial involved Alger Hiss, a former State Department official who was convicted of perjury. Hiss was convicted of having decepted the jury under oath with his testimony about not being involved with the Soviet Union and the spying that was occurring within the United States government during World War 2.
