plaintiff's filing, wrongful imprisonment, Richard Eberling, petition, petition for declaration of innocence
Request to the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas to make the determination that Samuel Sheppard is a wrongfully incarcerated individual (petition made under the case number in the criminal division). The petition asserts that much new evidence was gathered and modern scientific techniques were applied to the evidence. "The result of this investigation leads to the conclusion that Dr. Sheppard is innocent of the murder of his wife, Marilyn, and that an individual named Richard Eberling, currently incarcerated for the murder of another woman, is the likely murderer."
