Description

Describes Sam's motion for a new trial which includes forty "reasons" why the new trial should be granted. The motion charges the court, prosecutors, the state's witnesses and the newspapers with misconduct and irregularities. Despite the fact that he was NOT granted a new trial at this time, the Supreme Court in 1966 agreed with many of these charges when they threw out his conviction.
