Cleveland Press, Sheppard v. Maxwell

Abstract

This June 30 front page Cleveland Press editorial ran in the morning and evening editions with two different headlines "Why Isn't Sam Sheppard in Jail?" and "Quit Stalling -- Bring Him In." The editorial states that Sheppard is "surrounded by an iron curtain of protection" and his family, friends, Bay Village officials and Bay View hospital staff have "combined to make law enforcement in this county look silly." It claims that "no murder suspect in the history of this county has been treated so tenderly." In Sheppard v. Maxwell, the Court noted Sam was arrested at 10 o'clock in the evening after these editorials ran.
