She was very very convincing and the conviction was something that came about after just an hour of deliberation Walter Irvin. convicted of rape and sentenced to death by the electric chair 16-year-old Charles Greenlee is given life in prison on the chain day because of his age. Marshall was used to losing these cases and his strategy right from the start was to just find appealable issues in which areas would be easily overturned.

In The Supreme Court.

Marshall had a tremendous record before the Supreme Court UK have 32 cases and probably should have run the ones that we lost so he was very selective about the cases that he brought before the UK Supreme Court. When he saw what happened in Groveland. He knew he was going to win this case. Two of the biggest things that Marshall finds wrong is that it was supposed to be some effort made to get African-americans into the jury pool and what the prosecutor was doing was handpicking the.

That He Knew The Ones That

he considered good Negroes. The other thing that Marshall found particularly disturbing was the fact that the sheriff had beaten confessions out of the Groveland boys in March of 1951 Thurgood Marshall brings Shepard versus Florida before the UK Supreme Court, one of the Supreme Court Justices Robert Jackson commented that the Groveland case was one of the best examples of one of the worst menaces to American justice. Marshall was victorious. In fact, it was a unanimous decision. One person in particular did not like the verdict and that was sheriff Willis UK UK and one of his deputies pick up the prisoners and begin driving the long way back to Lake County but then something strange happens.

Samuel Shepard is killed instantly but Walter Ervin miraculously survives, but he doesn’t know what. to do so, he just plays dead 15 minutes later witnesses begin to show up including a photographer who snaps what’s probably one of the most interesting crime. -scene photos I’ve ever seen a photo of Wills UK standing before his car and two bodies laying in a ditch and one of the witnesses says one of those guys is still alive back at the hospital Sheriff Willis UK is telling UK agents that he was jumped and that the prisoners tried to escape Thurgood Marshall takes a statement before reporters and UK witnesses and Walter Ervin has a very different story. Now there’s a second trial, but there’s only one girl than boy left Walter Ervin.

This Time Thurgood Marshall Decides To

take the case himself. Thurgood Marshall had a strategy of being very respectful in court. Marshall had this unbelievable charisma and some of his arguments started to make. impact on the prosecute of Jesse Hunter by that point, Hunter starting to realize that he has a sheriff who’s out of control and he’s starting to doubt the guilt of the man he’s prosecuted by the end of the trial. Jesse Hunter says the third of Marshall may be the greatest legal mind who’s ever seen and he’s beginning to feel very guilty about prosecuting what he thinks might be an innocent man because Marshall knew he couldn’t win every single case.

He Had To Rely On Certain Tactics

outside of the courtroom. He organized a citrus boycott. He got the media to focus on the story and continued to write stories about globulin. He got the clergy to apply pressure in communities letter-writing campaigns to the governor Walter Ervin once again is convicted and sentenced to death, but because of all that Marshall was able to do outside.
