Description

In Sheppard v. Maxwell, the Court noted that newspaper headlines repeatedly stressed Sam's supposed lack of cooperation with police and other officials and his refusal to take a lie detector test. This story reports that when County Detective Carl Rossbach asked Sam if he would submit to a lie detector test, Sam replied "I understand that instrument and in my emotional state and as I sick as I am, it would show some disturbance ...might later on." The article also reports that Rossbach was "not satisfied" with the answers Sam gave to many of his questions.
