Narration describes how jurors in the trial of Sam Sheppard for the murder of his wife, Marilyn, were not sequestered and in fact were treated like celebrities and highly exposed to the press and public during the trial. Footage follows from the trial of William Corrigan in counsel with Sam Sheppard. Narration continues to read from the US Supreme Court decision over stills from the 1954 trial. Clip continues with a shot of the facade of the Cuyahoga County courthouse, venue for both the 1954 and the 1966 re-trial of Sam Sheppard. Sheppard is seen walking to the court building while smoking from a pipe.
