U.S. vs. E. D. Shannabarger, Irene Brennan, Nancy Bodenhammer, et al.: Court's Ruling on Motions for New Trial, and Sentences

Description

Court's ruling on motions for new trial, and sentences in Criminal Case No. 13682: United States vs. E. D. Shannabarger, Irene Brennan, Nancy Bodenhammer, Nancy Constable, Everett Pippin, Bessie D. Adams, Charles H. Kaiser, and James McNamara, defendants. Defendants appeared for sentencing beginning on April 16, 1937, and the court rejected Shannabarger's attorneys motion for a new trial. The court also suggests that the evidence against the defendants serving as election clerks was not as strong as against the other defendants, and that the evidence against Shannabarger, Bodenhammer, and Constable was not as strong as against the other election judges, Kaiser, McNamara, and Brennan. The manner in which ballots were falsified is also described in the transcript.
