Bay Village law director, Richard S. Weygandt,, recalling that the decision whether or not to arrest Sheppard had been thrust upon him three weeks ago, said he would have refused to participate in his preliminary hearing had he known from prosecutors that the defendant would be held in custody, so that a case could prepared against him for presentation to a Grand Jury. Weygant expressed that it had needlessly consumed his time, and the courts, for three weeks.
