Cleveland Press, Sheppard v. Maxwell

Abstract

In Sheppard v. Maxwell, the Court devoted a paragraph to this article, describing it as a "flagrant episode" in the intense publicity at the time of the trial. The story ran while the jury was being selected. Every juror, except one, testified at voir dire to having read stories about case in the newspaper or hearing news broadcasts about it. Seven of the twelve jurors reported having one or more newspapers delivered to their homes. The Court held that the jury was not given strong enough instructions to avoid newspapers, radio programs and TV news reporting on the Sheppard murder.
