Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard is intensely cross-examined today by Assistant Prosecutor, John J. Mahon. Sheppard reveals some details about his relations with other women. Defense attorneys heatedly object to the "other women" testimony, to which Judge Edward Blythin overrules their objections declaring, "His relations with other women must be taken into account." A surprise letter from Dr. Hoversten is later introduced, causing Dr. Sam to temporarily lose composure. Defense counsel then rounds out the day by asking Dr. Sam if he has ever sinned in his lifetime. Sheppard addresses the answer to that question directly to the jury.
