Summary:
This program tells the story of the Simpson trial of its time, involving a bizarre murder by two brilliant young students who decided to carry out "the perfect crime." In Chicago in 1924, Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold, misfits with a history of petty crimes, spent months planning the evil deed-establishing credit under a false name, renting a car under that name, stealing a typewriter to type a ransom note. They then kidnapped and murdered Loeb's 14-year-old cousin, Bobby Franks. Caught early, Leopold and Loeb had a highly publicized trial-and were defended by Clarence Darrow, who turned the case into a national forum on the death penalty. Pleading guilty, would these young men be executed or spend their lives in prison?
