Description

Defense attorney, William J. Corrigan, files an "affadavit of prejudice", demanding that Bay Village council president, Gershom M.M. Barber, be barred from presiding at the preliminary hearing. Corrigan cites Sheppard's contention that he could not receive a fair hearing in Bay Village. The purpose of the preliminary hearing is to determine whether there is "probable cause" to hold Dr. Sheppard to the Grand Jury for possible indictment.
